Biographical Note:
Charles Bird King (1785–1862) was an American portrait artist, best known for his portrayals of Native American leaders and tribesmen. He studied portraiture under Edward Savage in New York and later with Benjamin West at the Royal Academy in London. Upon his return to America in 1812, he spent several years traveling the East Coast in search of portrait commissions. In 1819 he opened a studio and gallery in Washington, where he painted many prominent political figures including John Quincy Adams, John Calhoun, Henry Clay, James Monroe, and Daniel Webster. Commissioned by the federal government, King painted more than one hundred portraits of Indian delegates, representing at least twenty tribes, who visited the capital from 1821 to 1842. He exhibited the portraits at the Smithsonian Institution until the paintings were destroyed by fire in 1865.
