Object Name Drawing
Description Charcoal and chalk drawing on brown paper. Utilizing a drawn on grid, a western scene has been drawn in charcoal with white chalk shading and coloring. The image created is of four covered wagons moving across a prairie--right to left--along a river. In the foreground, a wagon is driven by an adult male in a white shirt. Riding in the wagon is an adult woman and a child. The cover for the wagon has been folded back. Hanging off the back of the wagon is a cage. White grass licks the bottom of the wagon. In the background three wagons are also traveling across the prairie with white chalk covers. Written on the back is the title of the drawing.
