The Briscoe Western Art Museum (San Antonio, TX) is pleased to present the newest addition to its permanent collection, a very rare deluxe set of George Catlin’s North American Indian Portfolio.
This edition of 31 hand-painted color plates is one of only three known sets still in existence. “Catlin’s Portfolio” is among the most famous color plate books relating to North America’s Native populations produced in the 19th century.
The collection, originally on exhibition at the museum in the summer of 2017, now belongs to the museum and will be on display beginning Friday, February 1, 2019, in the Marmion Gallery.
