Indexer Notes

Not signed, but horse, muscles and face of Straight Arrow are all Meagher. The only unfamiliar is the face and hair of the man in foreground, but his ear and arm movement are Meagher too. The horses of Meagher are extremely elegant. The inking makes them appear shiny with the few inklines, or heavy clean blacks on muscles. The muscles of people are also visible through the shirts, and that is a special clue to Meagher. Art ID by Steinar Ådland December 2010
