" TWO INDIAN HORSES "
Bev Doolittle - 1985
12,253 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition Print
7.5" x 47"
It is fall, 1875. A regiment of the Second Cavalry takes a short reconnaissance ride from Fort Ellis, Montana.
The soldiers have stopped to rest the horses and themselves before moving on to complete the last of many
such rides before the onset of winter.
As a rule, most people view things from left to right . . . it's a habit from reading. So, by camouflaging
the two Blackfeet Indians, the viewer will pass over the Indians on the extreme left of the painting,
continue on down the row of horses to the soldier walking off the extreme right end of the painting.
By having most of the horses turned and looking off to the right helps to subtly force the viewer's
eye to the right and away from the "discovery" of the Indians. Discovering the Indians last rather
than first helps to make the story more believable and lots more fun. These Blackfeet Indians
are about to be two horses richer, hence the title, "Two Indian Horses."
