The Briscoe Western Art Museum presents George Catlin: "North American Indian Portfolio"
The Briscoe Western Art Museum's summer exhibition will showcase a very rare deluxe set of George Catlin’s "North American Indian Portfolio." This edition of 31 hand-painted color plates is one of only three known sets still in existence. Catlin’s Portfolio is among the most famous color plate books relating to North America’s Native populations produced in the 19th century. The exhibition also includes excerpts from the documentary film, Frontier Visionary: George Catlin and the Plains Indians, produced by the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and a reference reading area.
