Tale of Two Pictures, Part 2: This 1935 painting by C. Stuart Johnston hangs in the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum in Canyon, Texas. The scene depicts the Stamper site in the Oklahoma Panhandle, where Johnston had directed excavations in 1933-1934. Note, however, that the buildings are shown as rectangular, flat-roofed Pueblo-style structures identical to the Antelope Creek houses envisioned by Floyd Studer, whose cooperation Johnston depended on at the museum. Compare this to the earlier drawing (Part 1).
