American, early 20th century. Acrylic paint on board. Painting depicts "The Texas", the steam engine made famous during the American Civil War by being the locomotive that pursued the captured train "The General" in the Great Locomotive Chase.

Painting depicts the steam engine pulling a single passenger car, blowing a plume of black smoke out of the engine, flanked by a cowboy on horseback waving at the engineers who peer out of the engine window. Indistinguishably signed lower right and lower left. Unframed 20" x 30". "The Texas" is currently housed in Atlanta, GA at the Cyclorama and Civil War Museum.
