By the 1920s, the West had become an important setting for popular fiction, and the wild horse often played a significant role in the storyline. Illustrations were used to enhance the drama, excitement and appeal of the narratives. Koerner, a well-known illustrator of western stories, created this painting for Hal C. Evarts' story "The Painted Stallion," which first appeared in the Saturday Evening Post, September 26-October 10, 1925.
