“Mountain Desert Trail” has also been referred to as Indian Scouts with Travois” in recognition of the sled like carrier being pulled behind a horse by the Indian.

John Hauser was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, but became fascinated with the American Indian of the Southwest and West at a young age; so much so that he painted and depicted them for the rest of his life in various aspects of their everyday living. He painted many portraits of Native Americans including “Sitting Bull” and “Red Cloud”. He is also known for the realistic accuracy reflected in his paintings.

Dimensions 9 ½” high x 15 ½” wide.
