About the same time that Catlin was having his portfolio produced, James Prichard borrowed a number of the images of Catlin's paintings for his scientific publication, the Natural History of Man. Included in Prichard's History were fine portraits of different human races taken from original drawings of various artists, most notably these by George Catlin. Based on first hand studies made in the field by Catlin, these prints provide us with some of the most authentic images of Plains Indians from the mid-nineteenth century.We have more prints from this series.
