Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. [not numbered]
A painting by Weimar, also on exhibition by Pettes & Leathe, is suggestive and forcible, if not so happy in the aggregate as some of his others. The subject is, of course, an Indian one. The Indians introduced are apparently in pursuit of foes, gliding through the woods and underbush on the trail. In the foreground one Indian is fully delineated, emerging into an opening in full war costume. Two other Indians are following with stealthy tread, but are partly crouched in the bushes. The muscular, swarthy form of the forward Indian is finely depicted. He carries a gun, and the savage expression on the copper-hued face is clearly defined. [P. 81.]
