19th/early 20th c. American Paintings, esp. from the Pacific Northwest and Alaska; also, American Western and Wildlife
Theodore Roosevelt (Ted) Lambert (1905-1960)
The Freighter (1947)
16 x 20 o/c
In 1937, Lambert did a dry point etching with the same title as this painting. It is identical except the subjects are reversed, which makes sense since the image Lambert scribed on the copper plate faces the same as this painting.
Lambert was highly respected by Alaskan mushers for his dog team paintings since they recognized that he knew his subject matter intimately.
