Chief Black Bear
Oil on Canvas
24" x 18" 60cm x 45cm
Commissioned by the great-great-grandaughter of the chief, a signer of the Ft. Laramie Treaty, and of whom there was no existing photograph. The result is a reconstruction from of other Arapaho men, including of the chief's son, who became an Episcopalian minister to his people.
