Bob, congratulations on your purchase. I have one hanging in my man cave that I found in an antique store here in Missouri in the mid 90's. It is one of the old ones done on canvas. It shows it age but is really neat. As I understand it, the artist commissioned to do the painting never made it out west to see what a Sioux, Cheyenne or Crow warrior looked like so he relied on what he had seen in books concerning savages which focused on Africa, so that is why some of the Indians in the painting look like they just stepped out of the jungle (check the war shields). Evidently, still a pretty neat painting albeit, a little flawed.
