Gift of Richard Heckert and the artist
Charles M. Russell distinguished the cowboy's rope as a creative element in western art. In Russell's roping scenes the rope played a dynamic role as the visual element pulling the narrative together. In this painting, Matthews uses the rope as the line which refines the composition of the work. The elegant arc of the rope calls attention to the skillful cowboy's graceful movements.
