Indegenous Peoples, Mandan Chief, Chef Mandan, Bodmer
"Mandan Chief - Chef Mandan"
The lithographs of plains Indians and their culture were printed in
"Naturgeschichte und Abbildungen des Menschen und der verschiedenen Rassen und Staemme nach den neuesten Entdeckungen und vorzueglichsten Originalen" by Heinrich Rudolf Schinz (1777-1861).
These lithographs of Native Americans were done by the lithographer J. Honegger
after Johann Carl Bodmer (1809-1893), who had traveled in America together with
Prince Maximilian Alexander Philipp zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) from 1832-34.
The Schinz edition was published in Zurich from 1835 to 1845
The individual prints of the collection we offer here are exquisitely hand-colored, heightened with eggwhite, brilliant in their colorful appearance. A very special set. There are only minimal traces of age and use in margins.
