Deer in a Landscape

Karl Bodmer Swiss

Not on view

The Swiss artist Bodmer is best remembered today as among the earliest delineators of Native Americans and the landscape and fauna of the American West. Those Images he produced in 1832-34 as artist of the Missouri River expedition of Prince Alexander Philipp Maximilian of Neuwied (1782-1867). This undated watercolor, however, must belong to Bodmer’s long later career with the French Barbizon school of landscape painters. As in some of the pictures of that period, the deer species, as well as their environment, is undeterminable.
