One of the all time great American sporting artists, Robert Abbett brought the same sense of artistry to the paintings he did in other genres. Bringing in the Colt is a lovely oil of a young Navajo woman riding through the red rock country with a pretty new colt trotting alongside. Her erect posture and the wind blowing through her hair and the manes and tails of the horses make this a portrait of youth and vitality.
