$1,876.90

About

19th century painting of Native Americans, painted likely ca. 1840-1860s, in the spirit of George Catlin. This rare painting is very finely painted and given the detailed rendering of the people and landscape appears to have been painted by an artist who witnessed these sceneries in reality. The present work depicts a family of Native Americans gathered together next to a fire, surrounded by lush trees, with their teepees (or wigwams) visible in the left background, in the distance one can see majestic mountains. This very fine painting is reminiscent of the works by George Catlin and have been created, by a fellow artist (perhaps a visiting artist from Europe), in the same period that he was active. Provenance: Christie's London, 29 April 1977, lot 248 (erroneously described as aboriginals - this culture did not develop bow and arrow) Private collection USA The oil on canvas measures ca 31*36cms without frame and ca. 45 by 51cms with frame.
