Karl Bodmer - Assinboin Indians. 32

[ translate ]

This rare aquatint engraving is from Karl Bodmer's Travels in the Interior of North America or Voyage Dans l?Int?rieur De l?Am?rique Du Nord Execut? Pendant les Ann?es 1832, 1833 et 1834. The work was published in Paris, Coblentz and London between 1839 and 1842. It has the blind stamp.

Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians.

In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route.

Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the country's leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833 the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country.

Paper Size ~ 18" by 24 1/2"
Condition Report: The work is in very good to excellent condition overall. There is faint, even toning of the paper. There may be some faint general wear or toning and a few minor imperfections to be expected with age and size. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact with any questions.
