George Catlin was an American painter, author, and traveler who lived from 1796 to 1872. Born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Catlin showed a talent for art at an early age, and later received formal training in Philadelphia.
Catlin became known for his portraits of Native American leaders and scenes from their daily lives, which he painted during several expeditions throughout the western United States in the 1830s. He is considered one of the first artists to paint the American West, and his works offer a unique record of Native American cultures and lifestyles during a time of rapid change and displacement.
