Howard Terpning - Paper That Talks Two Ways
This original 58” x 70” masterpiece is part of Terpning’s private collection and has never
been offered for sale. It is being seen for the first time in this Fine Art Edition offering,
the last in our 30th Anniversary series. In the painting, we see a gathering of Cheyenne
and Sioux men intently listening to a man who is an orator among his people.
The words of the peace commission have been translated to him and he is expressing
his distrust of those words. Terpning wanted the entire focus of the painting to be
on the native people, so we see only the corner of a table and the shoes of
commissioner. The scene depicted here is not a specific treaty signing event, but
loosely patterned after the Fort Laramie treaty of 1868. The title comes from
expression that the treaty always said one thing to the white man
quite another to the native people.
