“Cheyenne Indians after a Raid” captures a scene between the Army troops sent to subdue the American Indians and white settlers in the West. The leader is seen blowing the bugle while his fellow warrior tries to cover his ears, wincing in pain – the humor of the American Indian! Lifting a moment from 1864, when the Southern plains were ablaze with a war between Southern Cheyenne and white settlers and the Union Army following the Sand Creek Massacre, the Indians are seen celebrating a victory in battle as they rampage through an Army camp avenging the killing of many native women and children.
The central character of this original Jerry Crandall oil painting has captured a bugler's shell jacket and his bugle and is attempting to duplicate the Cavalry’s bugle call without much success – and to the discomfort of his fellow rider.
This piece is 30" x 40" and framed oil on board.
