Carl Bodmer, pinx ad nat. Desmadryl, sculp. A fine image from the "Travels in The Interior of North America" by Maximilian, Prince of Wied-Neuwied. In 1832, the German prince, Maximilian of Wied, organized an expedition to explore the region along the Missouri River. He was accompanied by Bodmer, a young Swiss artist, who recorded in pictorial form all he observed. Following the Lewis & Clark trail up the Missouri River, they traveled 5,000 miles during the course of a year. Maximilian kept detailed notes on a day-by-day basis for his book, which was published c.1839-44 in Coblenz, Paris, and London. Bodmer's landscapes, portraits, and splendid scenes of Indian life are regarded today as the finest picture histories of the western frontier at that time. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Western & Indian , Karl Bodmer
