Additional Details

Back from the River is classic Martin Grelle. Sun edges the trees and a small herd of ponies as a brave brings them back to camp, presumably from the river of the title. Ed Trumble describes the part of Southern Colorado that provides the backdrop for this painting as “near idyllic.” And so it must have been. Whatever they’ve gone through, whatever they’re about to face, this family or band of Native Americans and their mounts are, for today, enjoying a moment of utter beauty and tranquility. This lot is illustrated in The Story of Leanin’ Tree on page 380 A copy of the book will accompany this lot
