4 3/4" Indian Arrowhead - Unknown Origin


13" x 17 1/4" with frame; Back says: HOYESVA - Oraibi, Arizona


Indians Discovering Lewis and Clark (Painted in 1896) Story on back says: In this fascinating oil study, the artist, whom J. Frank Dobie once characterized as "the most graphic art historian on the Old West", makes a sardonic reversal of an accepted point of view.  Most historians and artists would have given preeminence to the fabled explorers, first to penetrate this unchartered wilderness in their epic 1804-6 "tour of discovery".  But Charlie Russell saw it from the Indians' point of view - the white man was "the intruder" who had been "discovered" passing through their ancestral lands.  This famous oil was acquired from the Malcolm Mackay Ciollection in 1951.  It is permanently exhibited in our Charles M. Russell Room, Helena.  Michael Kennedy, Director, Montana Historical Society
