Artist: Daniel Long Soldier Title: The Story of Jack Red Cloud Size: 29 3/4" x 20 7/8" Edition: Artist Signed and Numbered Limited Edition Published from the artist's original work to 50. Medium: Giclee On Paper About the Art: The "Lakota Wicitowa" (Lakota Paintings) of Daniel Long Soldier are one of the purest expressions of American art we’ve ever presented. The naïve drawing style, created on pages of an authentic late 1800’s ledger, immediately raise the question of whether or not we were looking at something created 150 years ago or today.
Long Soldier brings us what no other artist can: he grew up hearing the stories and exploits of the Oglala Sioux told as family histories. Just as we know what Uncle Jack did during WWII, he knows what his Grandfather did at Little Bighorn.
The four-panel story of Jack Red Cloud is just such an example. As an adult, Red Cloud was recognized as a leader and orator of the Oglala. As a young man he was as eager as any other young brave to prove his worth in battle. As the son of the renowned chief Red Cloud, he felt the pressure even more. Wearing his father’s war bonnet and carrying his gun Yellow Boy, Jack and other teen warriors rode with a war party against the Crow.
Jack bravely attacked a group of Crow by himself, but found himself in trouble when he ran out of ammunition for Yellow Boy. Recognized as the chief’s son he became the target of the Crow. In the ensuing chase, he was knocked off his horse as the Crow counted coup and he lost his father’s bonnet and rifle. He was saved by a fellow Oglala warrior.
Daniel Long Soldier’s four-panel "Story of Jack Red Cloud" has been combined onto a single sheet for presentation as this Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Edition Giclèe Paper. This 29 ½" x 21" print, in an edition of 50, is as authentic piece of fine art and Plain’s history as any collector could hope to own.
