In every aspect of life, there are moments when things go wrong. This painting reflects one of those moments.
Rider and horse are one, or are they? The horse senses danger and is shying away. The rider, too involved in the hunt, senses no such danger. Will this be a turn for the worse?
The Buffalo are intent on escape, but turn into each other. Will they avoid a crash? Or, will they end up in a crumpled heap, easy prey for those in the chase?
In either case, a turn is happening.
A Turn for the Worse
