Gloss:
Although women were generally absent in western American art, Miller portrayed them in pastoral scenes of Indian life. In this scene, a strong, attentive horse, standing alongside his master, echoes the attention being given by the Indian to his wife. All eyes are directed to this woman, making her, with child on her back, the center of attention.
