Gloss:
In much of Remington's work during his early career, the Indian served as a symbolic foe - a hostile and resistant force set squarely in the path of progress. The Cheyenne carries, in the sweep of his dynamic charge and grimacing expression, the bold presence and resolute gesture of Native peoples in desperate defense of their world.
