This painting was made in 1898. Painting is oil on canvas. Well this piece i like it. I see light colors were used. Plus of course guess who are the main characters in this? If the cowboys in the front shooting was your guess well good job. You can see that they are trying to fight for their lives. You can see the Indians in the distance going in circles. This move these cowboys did i have seen in cowboy movies. They would even shoot their own horses to provide some type of of cover. Also you can see that both teams lost some brave men.
