Does anyone have a source to buy a print LARGE version of Paxtons Custers Last Stand? The ones Ive been seeing on Ebay and online are very small. I have to find Spotted Wolf in the painting as I was just told he is in it.
How large is LARGE? The battlefield museum sells the print at 28"x20"; the image size is of course smaller due to the border. I'm afraid that is about the biggest you'll find of the painting in a print. The Buffalo Bill Museum sells it about that same size; I bought one in 1980 while I was working at Yellowstone NP for the summer. Didn't have the money then to get glass over it but got a cheap plastic imitation wood frame for it. It yellowed over the years and I tossed the print several years ago.
As for finding Spotted Wolf, good luck. One of the knocks on the work is that all the faces look alike. The Trading Post across from the battlefield advertises the print coming with a guide that IDs all the key personalities.

Thanks guys, Ill go with the battlefield Museum print. Spotted Wolf Lost an eye on LSH and came off it with a white handle revolver and his greatgrandson spotted him in the print. Steve, Leary is still working on my Boston and Autie Reed figures. I know you have issues with the trousers but he does do greatwork. You have to see his special one of a kinds. He did Corporal Foley for me and made him bald with the black hair just around the hairs and below. He is stuck on what to arm them with and I have no answers, but I swear I have in notes that Autie was lent one of Toms Sporting rifles. In Paxtons print Autie Reed has what looks like a long Tom. Steve that bullet that went in Spotted Wolfs eye stayed in him and I think its one of Custers RIC bullets. If they evergot to do testing on his remains, well that will never happen. Just my opinion. The man never told any war stories that he killed long hair but him and his son or brother both came back with white handled revolvers so its food for thourght. Then again at DullKnife another set of white handle revolvers were captured,so Im thinking Toms. I know his one presentation revolver was left home but God did soldiers get a lot of handguns as gifts.Meaning officers. Toms having 2 CMH's had his share. Keough please message me about the revolver in the Keough collection in Ireland. My friend from the 10th Mountain is going up to Canada from Drum a month earlier from what I told you about I need to know what the holster looked like stiching and stuff like that. Joe
