The Indian and coloured ink sheet, 19 x 16in (49 x 40cm), dated from 1971 and was of “museum
quality”; it showed the luckless French cowboy being ambushed by a Necktie Party (sic), and was accompanied by a letter from Morris
insisting that he had hand-coloured the sheet himself. Bidding shot to €43,000 (£27,600).
