About this book

George Catlin's American Buffalo presents 40 oil paintings by George Catlin (1796-1872), one of the first artists of European descent to travel up the Missouri river following the buffalo and the native Americans who hunted them. On the Oklahoma prairie, Catlin witnessed a landscape blackened by millions of bison, and recorded the traditions of its indigenous people.

On one level Catlin's paintings offer an insight into 19th-century American ideas about the land and animals of the Continent. But he was also the first to champion the notion of a national park to protect the buffalo and native American people, that he portrayed so vividly in his paintings. Many of the artist's own journal entries accompany the featured paintings; together they present a complex character, whose vision still informs much of today's ecological debate about the future of America's Great Plains.
