    DRAMATIC HAND-TINTED SIGNED HUFFMAN IMAGE. Impressive 16" x 7" hand-tinted photograph depicting cowboys as they round up a herd of cattle in the Big Dry region of Montana. Huffman's images of American Indians and people who settled the early West are considered some of the finest - precisely detailing the open range years, 1878 through 1905. While the specific date of this image is unknown, it is documented in Huffman's hand, in white ink: "Round-up at Work Cutting Big Dry Montana," and "Photo & © by L A Huffman Miles City." Huffman operated his own photography studio in Miles City from 1878 through 1905, and colored this image personally. In fine condition. Matted and framed to an overall size of 23" x 19".

    Provenance: The Chris Kortlander Collection
