information from the Smithsonian American Art Museum catalog

description: George Catlin described this Brave, along with the Snake (see 1985.66.213), as “fair specimens of the [Winnebago] tribe, who are generally a rather short and thick-set, square shouldered set of men.” The artist probably painted the two portraits in Washington, D.C., in the autumn of 1828. (Truettner, The Natural Man Observed, 1979)
