In the late 1960's and early 70's, the long American love affair with the Western was still going strong, but a more contemporary approach to the genre was sneaking in.
Around the time Katherine Ross starred in the hugely popular (and boldly anachronistic) Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid, this model was posing for the artist R. Hendrickson, who made sepia-toned images depicting intimate "Old West" scenes like this bathing nude.
The rendering of this iconic photograph onto 6 separate ceramic tiles is unique and rare. The glossy, thick tiles together make up the image; they have been mounted onto a burlap matting over board, and framed with solid wood, for an overall cohesive color palate of natural earth tones. A substantial piece, it has the heft of quality materials and solid workmanship.
