 RETURNING TO CAMP   

Print (Returning to Camp) 


Print on Canvas (Returning to Camp) 


 
- by Charles M. Russell (1901)
In this painting, the viewer's gaze trails after the women and boys after a successful buffalo hunt. The men, having butchered the kill, have ridden ahead leaving the women and boys to transport the rewards of the chase back to the village by travois or on pack horses. Returning to Camp is full of human interest and rich in the kind of detail admired in Russell's work. A mother, watching her son display the trophy of his chase, knows that soon he, too, will hunt the mighty buffalo. An old woman drives off one of the wolf-like dogs, frustrated in its effort to partake of the feast so tantalizingly near. For many, the buffalo provided food, clothing, home and tools, a point Russell made visually in this oil.
