Exhibition: George Catlin: American Indian Portraits

During the 1830s, Pennsylvanian-born artist George Catlin (1796-1872) made five trips to the western United States to document the Native American peoples and their way of life. The resulting portraits—Catlin’s “Indian Gallery”—became one of the most extensive, evocative, and important records of indigenous peoples ever made, and they toured America and Europe during the next ten years. This Terra Foundation-supported exhibition of more than 50 portraits will be the first time that they have been seen together outside America since  the 1840s.
