46" x 46" framed. Acquired from a private collection in Colorado. "Apache time was sometimes different than Army time. During the Yavapai wars in Arizona territory, circa 1872, General George Crook, called Nantan Lupan (Chief Wolf) by the Apaches, was in charge of forcing Yavapai and Tonto Apaches onto the Campe Verde Reservation. In order to parley with the tribes and convince them to surrender, Crook was one of the first to use Apache Scouts. In this painting, Crook, a small detachment of the Third Calvalry, and two Apache scouts are waiting for Tonto Apache leader Eschetlepan and his band, who said they would come that day to talk. But they didn't say when... Could be morning, could be noon, could be sunset... Nantan Lupan Can Wait!" - Mark Maggiori.
