Object Name Painting
Description Acrylic painting on transparency. The transparency is taped to a Currier and Ives lithograph. The transparency and lithograph are taped to a piece of white Bainbridge cardboard. The color lithograph depicts a hunter in buckskin riding a horse across the prairie at dusk away from a party of four Native Americans on horseback. The Native Americans are brandishing bow-and-arrows. The hunter is turned around in the saddle watching the Native Americans. The transparency overlays the print and has an acrylic painting of a television set with no screen or mechanical gear inside; the rider is watching the Native Americans through the set. The set is sitting on the back of the horse. Artist notes are written along the bottom of the mat in graphite and ink.
