Notes In the painting, Russell situated himself prominently in the foreground, on a hilltop, seated astride a horse. He gestures with his left arm outstretched, inviting the viewer to meet his friends-both cowboys and Indians-who are riding up to greet him. The figures are set against a panoramic backdrop composed of the Missouri River in the middle ground and Square Butte flanked by the Rocky Mountain Front in the distant background.
