About

John Berry is a well-known English artist who painted portraits of the royal family. During his career, he discovered Edward Curtis's photographs of Native Americans and became awestruck by the strength and power each portrait held. He studied them in-depth and became an expert in depicting the Native American lifestyle and portraits. This painting entitled "Tribal History" is an original oil on canvas painting measuring 24x30 in. For thousands of years, Indian people left evidence of their presence on the land with rock art: pictographs and petroglyphs. Pictographs are created by painting on rock surfaces with natural pigments while petroglyphs are pecked, carved, or abraded into the surface of the rock. In this painting, a man with his two sons are carving the story of their tribe with animals with a symbolic wolf in the corner.
