Gift of Mrs. J. Maxwell Moran
Ranney traveled to Texas in 1836 to serve in the Texas Army. His observations there provided inspiration for many of his western paintings. The Lasso depicts the struggle between the wild horse and the frontiersman. The "White Steed of the Prairie," a popular legend about a mythic emblem of wild freedom, probably also fueled Ranney's interests.
