Nat Love's Escape (Original)

$1,950.00

Size: 18" X 24"

This painting is oil on canvas and I am preparing for a one man show. The show will highlight many of of the forgotten black, brown and red men and women that helped to develop the western United States.

This painting is a work in progress of Nat Love. born a slave in Tennessee in 1854. On July 4, 1876, Love won championships in roping, riding and shooting contests at a rodeo in Deadwood. South Dakota.

In later years, while riding alone looking for stray cattle, he encountered a tribe of Yellow Dog natives. After battling them in a shootout, he was captured, but escaped by stealing one of the tribe's horses. This painting is an historical reference to his moment of triumph after escaping to regaining his freedom.

Of course, the shipping on this original painting, Nate Love's Escape, is absolutely free!

This is a 16" X 20" oil painting I created of Nat Love. After driving a herd of cattle to the rail head in Deadwood, Dakota Territory, he entered a rodeo on the 4th of July in 1876, enticed by the $200 prize money. He won the rope, throw, tie, bridle, saddle, and bronco riding contests. It was at this rodeo that he claims friends and fans gave him the nickname "Deadwood Dick," a reference to a literary character created by Edward Lytton Wheeler, a dime novelist of the day.
This painting is called "Nat Love's Escape" because of what happened to Love. In October 1877, Love writes that he was captured by a band of Pima Indians while rounding up stray cattle near the Gila River in Arizona. Although he claimed to have received over 14 bullet wounds in his career (with 'several' received in his fight with the Native Americans while trying to avoid capture), Love wrote that his life was spared because the Indians respected his heritage, a large portion of the band themselves being of mixed blood. The band of Native Americans nursed him back to health, wishing to adopt him into the tribe. Eventually, Love writes, he stole a pony and escaped into west Texas.
