Description: From Greenwich Workshop: "The Indians knew that the telegraph wires strung along the Oregon Trail carried white man's news which generally meant bad news for them. When time and opportunity permitted, these lines were routinely destroyed, usually by burning the bases of the poles. Fuel on the Plains was scarce and these three Sioux warriors have gathered bundles of brush along some river bottom to feed these fires in a vain effort to halt the white invader." From Thomas Nygard Gallery: "Tom Lovell came to western subject matter with impeccable credentials and the reputation of a mature, highly-regarded artist and illustrator. A graduate of the College of Fine Arts at Syracuse University, Lovell chose to use his talent to paint western subjects. Lovell was drawn to the history of the Old West and its wealth of inspiration for the historical painter. Although drawn from history, Lovell's paintings are fresh and vital, never tired or hackneyed. The quality of his contribution to contemporary western art is remarkable. Tom Lovell's work clearly illustrates the argument that western art be regarded as fine art."
