Downing the Nigh Leader – Frederic Remington (1890)

One of the many depictions that has lead to the image of Native Americans in Hollywood film. Almost probably inspired John Ford‘s Stagecoach (1939) where we can see an almost replication of the action the canvas onto celluloid.

    • Be interesting to know his process, he could have sketched it or worked from memory or was just pure imagination.
