Three Riders, Navajo, on Horseback

Eugene Holgate

About The Three Riders, Navajo, on Horseback

Holgate's control of his water-based paint shifts from transparent etheral treatment in the sky above the riders to a lyrical opaque depiction of the three horses in this scene. Vegetation appears static, in stark contrast to the horses' forward movement.
