    Literature
    S.H. McGarry, Honoring The Western Tradition: The L.D. "Brink" Brinkman Collection, Kerrville, Texas, 2003, p. 180, illustrated.

    The present work was completed as a collaborative effort between husband and wife team Don and Ann Baker. The artist modeled the bronze sculpture and his wife executed the polychrome patina applied to its surface. Upon completion of the edition the artist's wife provided L.D. Brinkman the following description of Southern Cheyenne Chief:

    "This piece depicts a head chief of the Southern Cheyenne tribe in the period of about 1880 . . . The model for this piece is a full-blooded 6'6" tall Southern Cheyenne named Jerome Bushyhead from El Reno, Oklahoma, who is a friend."1

    1 Ann Baker, unpublished letter.
