An early day herd of long-horn Texas cattle. These cattle on the ‘point’ were splendid specimens, five or six year olds. They were beautiful animals. They were very wild. Many of them had never seen a man on foot before. People walking were sometimes treed by them. It would have happened oftener if there had been more trees.” Frank Reaugh, Paintings of the Southwest, 1937.
Probably Reaugh?s masterpiece, The Approaching Herd, was exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1903, with the Society of Western Artists in 1903, and at the State Fair of Texas in 1905.
