"Early American #1"(9"x12") (Click here to bid on eBay)







"Early American #1"
9" x 12"

I've always admired the old indian portraits that were photographed by the army and other photographers in the 1870's and 80's. Photography was only 20 years old and these photographers brought pictures of real Indians to the "other" early Americans. Click on the image for a larger view.

I enjoy your landscapes but please, do more portraits. Your lively brushwork on the face is an interesting contrast to this stoic pose. Wonderful work!
