When "Chief Joseph Rides to Surrender" was released in 1982, it was the first Fine Art Edition to contain all the elements that would become hallmarks of a Howard Terpning classic: superior design, impeccable craftsmanship and insight into the power of the human spirit. It was one of the first of Terpning’s originals to reside in a museum collection.

This is a must have Fine Art Edition for the serious Terpning collector. Only "The Forces of Nature Humble All Men" commands a higher price on the secondary market. Bev Doolittle’s "Pintos" is the only other offset-lithograph fine art edition to trade in this price range.

The agony of defeat is powerfully rendered in this painting of the great Nez Perce Chief, Joseph, on his way to surrender to army troops in the foothills of the Bear Paw Mountains, only about thirty miles short of the Canadian border. It was here that Joseph made his famous speech: “I am tired of fighting. Our chiefs are killed . . . . The old men are all killed . . . . It is cold and we have no blankets. The little children are freezing to death. My people, some of them, have run away to the hills and have no blankets, no food; no one knows where they are, perhaps freezing to death. I want time to look for my children and see how many of them I can find. Maybe I shall find them among the dead. Hear me, my chiefs, I am tired; my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever.”
