  Trouble on the Trail

This is another colorfull art print featuring the grizzly bears and the cowboy. I found this in a newspaper magazine “The Star Weekly, Toronto,” dated: January 31, 1949

Sizes I have found:
13 x 19 1/2 inches

From a 1946 painting titled: “Trouble on the Trail”
Oil on canvas, 28 x 38 inches

Printed below the picture:
“Springtime in the Rockies is no reason for jubilation, if a traveller meets a grizzly mother who has emerged from a winter hide-out with twin cubs. The artist, O. Wieghorst, has well named the above episode “Trouble on the Trail,” and it is quite evident there is plenty of it. Both for the trail rider and his mount handicapped by the packhorse having broken loose. The drama of this sudden and embarrassing encounter is well rendered by the painter and there is a very fine mountain landscape as well.”
