Miller, Alfred Jacob - Attack by the Crow Indians

Fine Art Prints of Distinction


A Museum Quality Print of Attack by the Crow Indians by Alfred Jacob Miller for sale by Brandywine General Store. This watercolor on paper was completed by the artist sometime between the period of 1858 to 1860. The original size of the artwork is approximately 10 by 13 inches. Miller did not see this scene, which occurred during one of Captain Stewart's earlier trips to the mountains, but it was explained to him in detail and he painted several versions of it, including a large painting approximately 5 x 9 feet for Murthly Castle and this fine watercolor. According to LeRoy R. Hafen's account of the incident, a band of young Crows invaded the camp while Fitzpatrick was away and Stewart was in charge. They carried off stock, pelts, and other property. As Stewart described the incident, the Crow medicine man had told the braves that, if they struck the first blow, they could not win. Thus, they had to provoke Stewart or someone in his party into striking the first blow. Stewart must have known this information because he stood firm, refusing to strike. The Crows left, and the captain survived a situation in which he would have surely lost the battle.
