Woodside, John Archibald - Indian and Bear Fight Fine Art Print

Fine Art Prints of Distinction


A Museum Quality Reproduction Print of Indian and Bear Fight by John Archibald Woodside. This painting is not signed but is attributed to Woodside, it was completed in 1852. The original was an oil on cardboard and measures 21 by 25 inches in size and is now at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center. Woodside was a sign painter in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, he probably copied this after an original work by F. O. C. Darley who drew many illustrations of Indians based mostly on his imagination and texts of the day. Artists such as these were taking advantage of the public's desire to decorate with the scenes from the old American West. The picture shows a large bear that has just attacked an Indian who was riding on his horse. The horse has fallen over on the Indian who has his knife out trying to stab the bear. A smaller bear is on the other side of the horse and a third bruin is seen in the distance. A great scene from the Wild West of early America.
