Arnholt was known for his oil paintings, pastels, charcoals, and watercolors of Native Americans, as well as Ohio and Southern landscapes.

The painting is framed in a period carved giltwood frame, and measures 11 x 14.5 without the frame, 14.5 x 18 with the frame.While a light cleaning would help remove some surface dirt and brighten the colors even more, the painting overall is in very good original condition.
