Description: Here you have a Fantastic large period painting. Overall framed it is 27" by 39" and Artwork is 21 1/4" by 33 1/2". This likely could have been an illustration as Fisk was known as an illustrator of Western and pulp fiction themes. Here he nailed a story in the making. Obviously a bandit purposefully left a spur in the trail, for the lawman that was following him. Well Mr. Lawman found his spur so unscrupulously left behind, will he pay the ultimate Price? No I think not, the horse hears the bandit, note his cocked ear. The lawman is in a predicament but its not the end of the story. He could surely roll, pull and shoot as the rifle hammer is cocked? Mr. Fisk leaves that imagination to the viewer and their whim. In fact there is much left to the imagination on this one. Is the lawman a famed Texas Ranger? It would appear that the bandit is wearing garb regularly worn by those South of the Border! Which could easily place this as a Texas scene! And why is he being chased? What will be the outcome? This is an outstanding Museum quality painting with all of the items that make great collectibles. A colt on the hip of the lawman? He is wearing a plethora of collectibles, a 5 star badge, chaps, cuffs, bandana, hat boots gun rig etc. The bandit of course has his Winchester and sombrero. The horse sports a saddle and trappings. Thick oil with crazing, nicely painted. It should be noted that this painting has been cleaned and a few minor problems (sm. tear and minor in painting) fixed. It was preserved using the latest reversible technologies. Please view photos of paperwork and photo of painting where it was conserved. This painting truly is Museum ready. Any type of collection deserves some diversity and WOW factor and this one has it all. Dated under signature 1924.
