Collection of Hans R. Fueher;
Thence by descent to the present owner
William Robinson Leigh has long been associated with his depictions of the Southwestern United States lifestyle, especially his paintings of its inhabitants - the American cowboy and the native peoples of the Zuni, Hopi, and Navajo tribes. Noted for his usage of bold color and atmospheric lighting, he earned the title "Sagebrush Rembrandt" from collectors and dealers of the day. Leigh was descended from the ancestral line of the Native American Princess, Pocahontas. It has been speculated that this knowledge fostered an inherent passion for Native American subjects, a passion typified in the present offering.
