Additional Details

Cool heat washes over the landscape in Bert Phillips’s Riders in the Valley. Lavenders, light greens, and light blues dominate the composition, while Phillips, characteristically, dresses his chief in a flowing red robe. The story here is difficult to discern, but the power of the painting lies in Phillips’s dexterity with a deliberately limited palette and the movement of the paint in the disparate parts of the work.
