This portfolio of 33 lithographs by George Catlin (1796-1872) is an important part of MONA’s Artist-Explorers collection. After seeing a Plains Indian delegation on its way to Washington, D.C. in 1824, Catlin was inspired to dedicate his life to recording the disappearing customs and culture of Native Americans, traveling to the West to paint his subjects on their native land. In 1844, he produced a series of lithographs from the hundreds of paintings he had created.
