Victor Nehlig often painted native American subjects. He is perhaps best know for his Pocahontas and John Smith, which is in the collection of the Bringham Young University Museum of Art.
This painting offers an unusual anecdotal genre scene of a romantic encounter in the wilderness. The painting shows a Native American warrior in an embrace with a captured and integrated white woman. In the background, another warrior draws his bow, obviously jealous of the beautiful maiden.
