EDGAR PAXSON (1852-1919) WATER COLOR INDIAN C 1890Featured in this lot is this water color on paper of an Indian man circa 1890 by Montana Artist Edgar Paxson born in 1852 and died in 1919. The artwork features a wonderfully and professionally crafted water color on paper construction that depicts a Native American man made to be looking right at the viewer. The artwork is signed in the bottom right hand corner and is dated '90'. Edgar Paxson was an artist of the vanishing West. He was on the frontier just before Frederic Remington and Charles Russell, and his 1877 arrival in Montana occurred when Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce Indians were warring their way through Canada. Paxson became a close friend of Russell, who arrived in Montana in 1880, and the two men became the state's most famous early or pioneer resident artists. Among the things they shared was a mutual pride at being self taught and a love of expressing aspects of Montana's frontier history. Some of his most sought after work are his small watercolors. In 1881, he settled in Butte, where he found more lucrative business, and in 1905, he settled in Missoula. The condition of this watercolor is good with no obvious signs of damage and shows good overall condition. The measurements of this framed watercolor is 18 1/8" x 15 1/8" and the visible artwork measures 9 1/8" x 7 1/4".
