"The United States government produced a series of unique coats to be given to the most highly regarded chiefs of various tribes, which they often wore as symbols of pride. Capturing the Chief's Coat depicts a Blackfeet war party returning from a raid against the Crow. Along with many horses, they have taken the coat of the Crow chief as a trophy. To capture the precise action of the water, models on horseback had to enter and re-enter the river many times. As with his careful depiction of human figures and Native regalia, the details of water and landscape are critical to me." - Howard Terpning

Overall excellent condition. The scene has great detail and movement. The print is framed, but does not have glass. Includes a small brass label with the name of the artist and the title of the work.

The craft paper on back is torn in 2 places, but will be inexpensive to replace. The paper can be replaced when you have UV-resistant glass added to protect the work.

Fine Art galleries and other dealers are charging between $2,500 - $3,450 for this print. One eBay seller is even asking $3990!

$1700, shipping in continental US (CONUS) included!

Payment by USPS Money Order or Paypal only! No certified checks!

NOTE: Please keep in mind that Mr. Terpning is 91 years old, so new works, as well as new limited edition issues of existing prints, are unlikely. After he passes, this signed, limited edition print will appreciate considerably in value. Many of his original works have sold recently for well over $1M+!
