Gloss:
The current title for this painting is not the artist's original title. In a June 23, 1905 diary entry, Paxson wrote, "I began working on a new oil, Turning the Worm, a buffalo hunt where the buffalo has turned on the hunter." A November 24, 1905 diary entry indicates Paxson had finished the painting, calling it When He is Bad. An inscription on the reverse reads When He's Mad. Further research may reveal which title is correct.
