Catlin's Indian portraits

Catlin's painting of Little Wolf

The National Portrait Gallery's exhibition of George Catlin's American Indian Portraits has come to Birmingham Museum (until 13th October). Well worth a visit, for the social history and the powerful personalities Catlin painted.

The NPG has published a hardback catalogue (£25, but currently available for as little as c. £15 + P&P via Amazon).
