Art : George Catlin

George Catlin par William Fisk (1849)

George Catlin (Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvanie, 1796 - Jersey City, New Jersey, 1872) est un artiste-peintre américain spécialisé dans la représentation des Indiens d’Amérique et de leurs us et coutumes. En 1821, il abandonne une brillante carrière d’avocat, pour se consacrer à sa passion : peindre les Indiens. Il voyage beaucoup dans les vastes territoires américains, et rapporte des peintures, des dessins et des objets d’artisanat. Son œuvre offre un témoignage essentiel sur la culture amérindienne (Wikipedia).
