Captain John Pope and Party at Artesian Well Drilling Site is a rare depiction of the activity of an expedition. Popes well, near the Pecos River crossing of the Texas-New Mexico line, became a landmark on the famous Goodnight-Loving Cattle Trail. Harry S. Sindall was the expedition artist but not much additional information about him survives. He was a noted oil painter and water colorist with his work done en plein air, or on site.
