Indian Attack near Russell, Kansas

Gogolin, Jakob

Adolph Roenigk, of Lincoln, Kansas, commissioned Jakob Gogolin to complete this painting in 1930. Roenigk wanted to reproduce the image for a book he was writing entitled, "Pioneer History of Kansas." This painting, along with two others, documents a Cheyenne Indian attack experienced by Roenigk while he was working for the Union Pacific Railroad near Russell, Kansas. Gogolin was a German-born artist living in Denver, Colorado. The set is believed to have originally consisted of six paintings.
