Naive Drawing on 1879 Ledger Paper: Two Men with Knives and Guns

Regular price $55.00

I assume this one was done by a boy c. 1900 or so, making use of an old ledger that was laying around. I love how positively gentle this pair look even as they fire their guns and hold their knives at the ready, here seemingly fighting on the same side, their enemy beyond the frame. The drawing of the Native American, looking very much the more poised of the two, I find especially beautiful and really quite powerful. 

8 1/8” x 6 15/16” and in very good condition, with a bit more drawing on reverse.
