Charles Winfield Miller (1922 - 1995). The Ultimate Challenge. 28" x 16" oil on canvas. Signed lower right: CHARLES WINFIELD MILLER [cypher]. Artist written note attached: The Ultimate Challenge (once in a lifetime offer). Seeking great glory, wearing a cap of red painted dried bear guts. This warrior defiantly plants his staff through his sash indicating that he will stand & fight to the death on this tether. An overt challenge to all enemies, his coups were counted double - a reasonably good idea carried to a ridiculous extreme unless one is damn well convinced of an afterlife. The positioning of the lance in relation to the figure in this work is a compositional one, rather than tactical. Condition reports can be viewed at www.marchinmontana.com/docs/2013CR.pdf
