A Mountain Menace
A puma crouching in a gnarled tree, left, tenses to spring
at a running horse trying to retain its footing as it senses
the big cat. Four other horses in the small band scamper in
other directions. A mountainous landscape fills the background.
An early work by the artist, the picture's high-keyed palette
uses autumn colors. This painting is paired with a similar theme
painting "At Bay."
