Yesterday They Rode by Jerome Tiger

This painting evokes a deep feeling of sadness as a lone warrior gazes across a barren landscape visualizing the adventures and glory of yesterday. Realization creeps in as he lets his spear drop to the ground acknowledging that the days of riding free and glorious triumph are gone – gone forever.

The universal appeal of Tiger’s work speaks to people of all races through its beauty and deep spirituality. His style has had a tremendous major influence in the development of contemporary Indian art influencing other Indian artists who succeeded him. Since 1970, thirty-three of Tiger’s paintings have been reproduced as limited edition lithographs. Many of the lithographs are sold-out and are only available on the secondary market.

Condition: Excellent – original condition.  This lithograph is protected with acid free foam core board and shrink wrapped.
Provenance: Maintained in the same family gallery since purchased from the artist’s widow in Oklahoma
