Portrayed here at the age 91, Robert Yellowtail was the oldest living Crow Indian. When I first spotted him, he was sitting proud and erect on the back of his horse, as I have portrayed him here. Just a few minutes later, he spurred his horse and took off with the agility and bearing of a 20 year old.
The colors in the bead work used for Indian costumes are very significant as you can usually identify a particular tribe by the colors they wear. Most beads used today are 'white man's beads' and are rather garish. The challenge I find in painting a contemporary Indian in costume is to harmonize the colors for the sake of art. - JB

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, you must include your phone number and location. We'll get back to you quickly.
If you are having difficulty using our "email for price" or "bid" forms, please call us or switch to another internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.)
