A cowboy herds wild horses in a Southwestern desert. The vividness of the scene is stressed by the sharply defined shadows of the landscape, the musculature of the horse, the vibrant and contrasting colors, and intense motion of the subjects. Dust kicked up from the horses and the fluid movement of the herd across the canvas gives the composition a sense of life and movement.
