 ATTACK ON THE HERD   

Print (Attack on the Herd) 


Print on Canvas (Attack on the Herd) 


 
- by Charles Schreyvogel (c. 1907)
Beginning in 1893, Charles Schreyvogel made regular visits to the West, gathering impressions and satisfying an obsession with accuracy of detail equal to Remington's own. Schreyvogel's work, apart from a scattering of portraits and a few tranquil scenes, constitutes a sustained tribute to the Wild West. In his paintings, troopers charge, rifles and pistols discharge, sabers swing, bodies crash to the ground and horses are always at full gallop. Attack on the Herd is distinctive among Schreyvogel's paintings in that its white protagonist is a cowboy rather than a cavalryman. In other respects the painting is a typical Schreyvogel, isolating a few figures in a life-or-death struggle. The indigenous Americans have successfully separated the cowboy from the herd, and in the background another can be seen stampeding the cattle by flapping a blanket.
