The Custer Fight
Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney Trust Fund purchase
The Battle of Little Bighorn captured the attention of America. Dunton's painting features the Sioux warriors as the primary focal point rather than Custer's soldiers. In choosing this format, Dunton may have been following the lead of Charles M. Russell. In Dunton's painting, however, the focus on the Indian may be due less to an interest in portraying history from the Indian's point of view and more to a fascination with painting the picturesque Plains Indians with their war bonnets and painted ponies.
