Through the blazing heat of summer and the wind-driven blizzards of winter, the Plains Indians followed the wandering buffalo herds. Tribal destiny was so dependent upon the buffalo that it is often difficult to imagine Plains Indian warriors engaged in any activity besides hunting buffalo. But the daily life of the Indian was an infinitely varied complex of work, ceremony, play and rest. "The Hunter" portrays a moment of peace in a hunter's life.

This is a Sioux Indian - you can tell by the fish-tail notches in his arrows. Those notches made it easier to get the arrow to the bowstring quickly. It is at the end of the day and "The Hunter" has made a small twig fire. Perhaps he is waiting for a companion. Tomorrow this hunter will take up the buffalo's trail again, but for now, he shares some of his pemmican with these sparrows.

Tom Lovell
1909 - 1997 A Native American finding a Raggedy Ann doll on a lonely western road. A man teaching his blonde, gingham-dressed, settler wife how to shoot a rifle. A trio of Indians warming their hands over the chimney of a snow-buried cabin in an otherwise empty landscape. These are just three of the stories told through the art of Tom Lovell, considered by his peers one of the deans of Western art. But that’s not all. He was equally famous for his exciting and thought- provoking illustrations for such magazines as Life, The Saturday Evening Post and National Geographic—as well as his stirring images of sweeping Civil War battles which were considered so definitive that they were telecast as part of the famous Public Television documentary on the conflict and published in the accompanying best-selling book. Lovell was the first artist to win the National Academy of Western Art’s highest honor, the Prix de West, twice. He was elected to the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame in 1974 and eventually named a Hall of Fame Laureate. In 1992, he was honored by both the National Academy of Western Art and the National Cowboy Hall of Fame with a Lifetime Achievement Award and a prestigious one-man retrospective show. He has left a lifetime of work that will influence, impress and instill emotion for years to come.
