Winter camps might have been set up for a number of reasons. They might provide closer access to esteemed hunting spots, they could be a temporary spot for cattle grazing — the list goes on. Coleman's unique use of color gives us just enough of a sense of what's going on, all while leaving the details ambiguous.
Art is one of the best ways to capture and preserve parts of history. The Buffalo Bill Center of the West prioritizes this by dedicating one of our five museums entirely to Western art. You can
