In this lot is an original 1975 Gouache painting by Native American Lee Mitchell. This painting shows great action and humor. The painting shows an Appaloosa horse with a lasso around his neck. Part of the lasso disappears into a "Mens" outhouse, leaving us to assume the man had a ‘call of nature’ while working with the horse. The horse is wild eyed and kicking-up dirt, objecting to his proximity to the outhouse. The sky is a turquoise and the Appaloosa horse is a dark teal. This piece is in good condition, with the exception of very faint marks from a previous mat. The painting is signed in the lower right corner “Lee Mitchell #75”. The piece measures 20" X 16".
