Gloss:
Contemporary western art often celebrates the continuity of western traditions. The cowboy became the dominant hero in the art of Frederic Remington and Charles Russell, and this subject finds reinterpretation in the work of recent artists. By using a cropped, casual composition, Blake depicted a present-day cowboy as a down-to-earth workingman.
