    PORTRAIT OF GENERAL CUSTER BY RICHARD HEADLEY.

    Richard Headley has been producing fine art canvasses of the West for decades. His visions of notables such as George Armstrong Custer are collected for their remarkable detail and historical accuracy.

    In Visions of Glory, Headley captures the iconic image of the legendary cavalryman Custer in his buckskin coat and turned up Plains hat. On the back of this oil on canvas Headley himself inscribed Visions of Glory, Little Bighorn, June 25, 1876, 3:10pm

    Headley makes good use of browns and gold tones with his brush interspersed with the maroon tones of the cavalryman's kerchief to make this a magnificent composition of the hero of the American West who met his demise on that date and time.
