This beautiful original painting depicts the Cherokee Trail of Tears – a horrific long walk to a closed reservation in a strange country. The starkness of the background seems never ending with just the hint of a moon on the horizon. The blowing snow in the foreground even makes the viewer feel the coldness which surrounds the ones who are walking toward their new destiny. Troy Anderson has a distinctive style which captures the haunting tale of Indian legend and reality.
This beautiful art work is protected with Museum Glass, an anti-reflection picture framing glass with conservation grade UV protection. With its nearly invisible finish, it effectively blocks up to 99% of harmful indoor and outdoor UV light rays so framed pieces remain clearer and brighter for longer. It is the best glazing option available for art, photographs and other important personal keepsakes.
The matting on this picture is an acid free matte(s) for long term protection and to enhance the picture. Acid free mattes provide 75-100 years of protection against matte burn and brown marks which can decrease the value of a painting. The matting colors were selected to draw the eye into the picture complementing the artist’s selected brush work or towards a particular key element of the piece.
