Gloss:
Especially in his early career as a painter, Remington took a number of opportunities to paint portraits of westerners at work. In 1889, Remington accepted a commission from Milton E. Milner to show him and an associate, Judge Kennon, out searching for new cattle range in Montana Territory. The commission provided a welcome opportunity for Remington to provide some pictorial insights into the cattle business, to paint horses and cowboys at work and to produce a double portrait all in the same picture.
