Moon Over Journey is another painting emphasizing the hardships endured on The Long Walk.

This painting features a back view of four figures and a moon. Tiger has created a mood, a feeling, which clutches at the heart. He has dramatized the cold, the deprivation, and the hardships of the journey. All of this and more can be felt as the subjects on this horrendous journey trudge along. Details in the clothing and of the walking staff makes the empty space of the background even more effective.

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 prints. Many of the prints are sold-out and are only available on the secondary market.

Condition:  Excellent- original condition.  This print 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.
