After George Catlin; Circa 1850-1880; both 18" x 24"; watercolor on light brown paper. Catlin was one of the earliest artists to venture out West. He studied the buffalo and how the Native Americans hunted them on the plains. In this particular scene, two hunters are disguised as wolves as they carefully approach a herd of buffalo. He would later write about the work, "While the herds of buffalo are together, they seem to have little dread of th wolf and allow them to come in close company with them. The Indian then has taken advantage of this fact and often places himself under the skin of this animal and crawls for half a mile or more on his hands and knees until he approaches within a few rods of the unsuspecting group and usually shoots down the farthest of the throng." Pair
