The matting is signed; ‘Ute Lookout and Stolen Horses’ From the Sketch Book of Byron B. Wolfe. The frame is in very good condition with normal wear. An artist bio is provided on the back of the piece. Verso on the back of the piece: ‘UTE LOOKOUT AND STOLEN HORSES’ TIME – 1600’s INTO 1800s PLACE – SOUTHWEST TO CENTRAL PLAINS. REF – THE TREASURY OF HORSES by Walter D. Osborne & Patricia H Johnson. NOTE- In the year 1694 alone, 100,000 horses were stolen from the Spanish settlements in the southwest.
