Pony Express

Completed during the last decade of his life, Sam Savitt depicts the inherent loneliness of the Pony Express rider in this expansive oil painting (42 by 30 inches). While the Pony Express mail delivery service lasted only 18 months (1860-61), it is ingrained in the lore of the American West and represents the country’s first transcontinental communications system. This is the largest piece of artwork in our collection.
