Olaf Wieghorst
My Favorite Olaf Wieghorst Painting of Previous Weeks

 Comanche (Survivor of Custer's Last Stand)

A sorrel horse stands proudly on a flat rock plateau overlooking a vast surreal canyon. The horse is profiled right and fills the canvas. In the background are cumulus clouds over distant mountains. The subject of the painting is "Comanche," the sole survivor of Custer's Last Stand. The history of Comanche and and the Battle of the Little Big Horn makes this a favorite of mine.

From a 1958 painting titled: "Comanche"
Oil on canvas, 22 x 28 inches

Olaf Wieghorst painted around 1600 oil paintings, 3-5000 watercolors, and who knows how many drawing and sketches during his life time. I love them all. Each painting tells a story to me. I have hundreds of personal favorites and will be sharing a new one each week. If you have any comments on a painting or have a special favorite you would like me to post, please email me.
