Work Description: 
In this black and white portrait, a young Clyfford Still poses on horseback before a flat landscape in Bow Island, Alberta, Canada. Still wears a scout's uniform with a broad-rimmed hat and a long coat belted at the waist. Gripping the reins near his chest, Still balances the stock of a rifle against the horse's saddle so that its barrel projects to the right. A small patch of grass in the foreground reveals the field beneath the mostly snow-covered land. Both Still and the horse face the camera.
