Buffalo Painting

This is a photograph of an oil painting of a Native American buffalo hunt. It is dated "'79" and appears to be painted in a modern style. Though we do not recognize this artist, it definitely has the "feel" of a Native artist to us. The signature appears to read "Ben" or "Bin."

Solved: Thanks to Dorann for recognizing this artist. His name was Earl Biss (the signature says "Biss") and he was a Crow Indian artist. Here is a website about him, and here you can see some more of his beautiful paintings.

If anyone has more information about this particular painting, please contact the owner. Thank you!
