This painting was featured in our weekly email on 8/26/13 along with the following gallery comments:

Zwara’s body of work features more than a few pieces containing Western subject matter like this week’s Painting of the Moment. He was retained by the rail lines to paint pieces to hang in the passenger trains which traveled to the West Coast. That said, it’s also possible this was painted from a magazine image as he was also known to do. In viewing the painting, barely visible is the ‘grid’ that Zwara began with on the panel to keep the elements of the composition properly arranged and in perspective against themselves. It’s a common technique but interesting to view it here – an insight into the artist’s technique.
