The North American Indian Portfolio George Catlin was the first artist to travel widely among the Plains Indians of North America and create an important body of paintings and graphics to illustrate their customs and artifacts. His purpose was both unselfish and romantic. He wanted, and labored unceasingly, to persuade his contemporaries that Native American culture should be honored and preserved. During the 1830's, Catlin gathered artifacts and turned his sketches and recollections of the prairie into paintings. These were shown in 'Catlin's Indian Gallery' which drew enormous crowds in Philadelphia, New York, Washington, Boston and, finally, London and the Continent. In 1844, Catlin issued 'The North American Indian Portfolio' to further publicize his cause. The lithographs ranged from portraits to tribal ceremonies, from the anecdotal to the idealized. Above all, his pictures emphasized 'the struggle for survival that was thought to shape the force and independence of savage character' (Tyler, 'Prints of the American West', p.31).
