Artist Pummill, Robert
Title Run On the Cherokee Strip
Date 1992
Medium oil on canvas
Description Settlers on horseback and in covered wagons, galloping across the prairie in Oklahoma.

This painting, done in earth tones that create the feeling of dust and dry Oklahoma air, depicts the 1893 opening of the Cherokee Outlet . At the sound of a gun 100,000 land hungry westerners rode or ran to claim 160 acres of the 6 million acres of Indian Territory that the government opened to white development. This painting shows the rush for land when Indian Territory was open up for development.

Robert Pummill is a member of the Cowboy Artists of America. He considers Harold Von Schmidt one of the greatest influences on his art. Pummill studied at the Los Angeles Art Center School in Los Angeles, California.
