"The Lasso" by William Ranney shows a horse and rider roping a wild horse out on the dust-swept prairie.
29" x 21"
Unframed Western art print
Ranney traveled to Texas in 1836 to serve in the Texas Army. His observations there provided inspiration for many of his western paintings. The Lasso depicts the struggle between the wild horse and the frontiersman. There is speculation that a western myth about a wild, white steed may have also fueled Ranney's interest.
