Gift of The Alexander Bodini Foundation, in memory of Alexander Bodini. The Board of Trustees of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West and the Whitney Western Art Museum Advisory Board dedicate this painting to Mindy N. Besaw, Margaret and Dick Scarlett Curator of Western American Art at the Center from 2007 to 2014.
Schenck brings characteristics of Pop Art to western art. His hard-edge flat style with its saturated color reminds the viewer that western subjects have become part of popular culture through posters, cartoons, and decorative objects. He playfully recalls western myths in this painting that quotes from classic paintings by William R. Leigh and Edgar Payne.
