In this work, John comments about the definition of "Western art" -- a reference to art historical terms of Western art as Europeon and American art. Yet, we often call art of the American West -- "western" art. In art history courses about, and in displays about, western American art, we so often leave out the greater context of art history as a whole -- John brings us back to this point, celebrating the long history of art -- Fraser related to Caravaggio.
