The Lone Sentinel was not only artist Frank McCarthy’s first Greenwich Workshop release, but the first western art piece ever produced by Greenwich. McCarthy’s dramatic images of the American West have gained a legion of admirers among art lovers and critics alike, and Greenwich is proud to have brought his art to collectors for the past thirty years. Whether his subjects are Native Americans, mountain men, cavalry, or cowboys, McCarthy’s work has such intensity that each painting literally involves the viewer in the excitement on canvas. Although McCarthy is primarily known for the action in his paintings, this calm, peaceful, brooding image of a Northern Cheyenne guarding his village is one of his most iconic images.
War pony well concealed nearby, this sentinel squats atop a high rock outcropping that gives him a splendid vantage point, watching for the approach of hostile Native Americans or trappers who might menace his village’s most prized possessions: the horse herd.
