The history of James Earle Fraser's"The End of the Trail"
This doleful image of a battle-weary brave on his war pony is one of the most recognized symbols of the American West. By many it is viewed as a reverent memorial to a great and valiant people. To some Native Americans, however, it is viewed as a reminder of defeat and subjugation a century ago.
The monumental, 18-foot plaster sculpture was created by James Earle Fraser for San Francisco’s 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition and received the exposition’s Gold Medal for sculpture.
The subject of immediate popular acclaim, the image was widely reproduced in postcard, print, curio and miniature form.
Although Fraser hoped his masterpiece would be cast in bronze and placed on Presidio Point overlooking San Francisco Bay, material restrictions during the First World War made the project impossible. Instead, in 1920, the city of Visalia, California, obtained the discarded statue and placed it in Mooney Park, where it remained, in a gradually deteriorating condition, for 48 years.
In 1968, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum acquired this original plaster statue, restored it to its original magnificence, and made it a focal point of the museum. Fraser regretted that he never copyrighted the sculpture.
Fraser never registered copyright of his sculpture. Today, even his unregistered copyright has expired. Original contemporary images inspired by his sculpture, such as mine, may be copyrighted, as they are substantially the intellectual property of the artist.

Ready to Hang Gallery-Wrapped Giclées on Canvas Gallery-wrapped edges allow you to hang your giclée with or without a frame. Gallery wrapped canvases are mounted on light-weight hidden wood frames that reduce shipping costs and are ready to hang. No wire or metal hangers are needed. A picture's background is either wrapped around the sides of the frame, which is 1" to 1.5" wide, or edges of the picture are "mirrored" on the sides (as pictured). Some Gallery Wraps will have solid color on the sides. Can also be mounted in a traditional frame.
Blue-Stained Pine Frames
Sometimes called "Beetle-Killed Pine," the subtle hues in this wood can range from rust red to brown to blue-gray. While this wood is too soft for construction purposes, we turn it into beautiful picture frames. Canvases may be stretched on wooden bars or board-mounted and are placed in the frame from the back.
Reclaimed Wood Frames
Also known as "Barnwood."
We consider such wood to be artifacts, and salvage it from local structures slated for demolition. We then give the old and weathered wood "new life" as picture frames.
Canvases are board-mounted and placed in the frame from the back.
Flat Giclées on Canvas
Flat giclées on canvas are not mounted or framed. They are rolled and shipped in sturdy Priority Mail containers. Flats are ready for the customer to have stretched on wooden bars or board-mounted for framing. Sizes up to 12" x 18" have 2" white borders. Larger sizes have 2" borders on long sides and half-inch borders on the other two sides. Board-mounting is recommended.
Ready to Hang Framed art has three holes ready for hanging. We recommend using the outer two holes. Simply hang them on well anchored screw or nails. Rock art, because of its heavier weight has one or two steel rings on nylon hangers that are attached to the rock's back with quarter-inch bolts and nuts secured in holes that run completely through the rocks.
