George, painter, born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, in 1796 ; died
in Jersey City, New Jersey, 23 December, 1872. He studied law at Litchfield,
Connecticut, but after a few years' practice went to Philadelphia and turned his
attention to drawing and painting. As an artist he was entirely self-taught. In
1832 he went to the far west and spent eight years among the Indians of
Yellowstone river, Indian territory, Arkansas, and Florida, painting a unique
series of Indian portraits and pictures, which attracted much attention on their
exhibition both in this country and in Europe. Among these were 470 full-length
portraits and a large number of pictures illustrative of Indian life and
customs, most of which are now preserved in the national museum, Washington.
1852-'7 Mr. Catlin travelled in South and Central America, after which he lived
in Europe until 1871, when he returned to the United States. One hundred and
twenty-six of his drawings illustrative of Indian life were at the Philadelphia
exposition of 1876. He was the author of "Notes of Eight Years in
Europe" (New York, 1848);" Manners, Customs, and Condition of
the North American Indians" (London, 1857); "The Breath of
Life, or Mal-Respiration" (New York, 1861) ; and " O-kee-pa : A
Religious Ceremony, and other Customs of the Mandans" (London, 1867).
