    George Catlin has been called the "first artist of the West", as none before him lived among and painted the Native American tribes of the Northern Plains. After a false start as a painter of miniatures, Catlin found his calling: to fix the image of a "vanishing race" before their "extermination" - his word - by a government greedy for their lands. In the first six years of the 1830s, he created over 600 portraits - unforgettable likenesses of individual chiefs, warriors, braves, squaws, and children belonging to more than 30 tribes living along the upper Missouri River.
