"Fighting Meat" is compositionally similar to an 1894 oil painting by Russell, "Buffalo Hunting" (Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth); both works show a single Indian brave preparing to bring down his quarry with a bow and arrow. In the museum’s watercolor, the artist focused on the violent nature of the hunt, capturing the death throes of the already wounded animal and the intensity of the Indian charging on horseback. The bright, clear coloration is most typical of the watercolors Russell painted late in his career.
