This brightly colored American Indian study by Herbert M. Herget is one of ten works on paper, probably intended for classroom use to illustrate a variety in tribal clothing. All the subjects represented, some in borrowed poses (George Catlin, Carl Wimar, and N.C. Wyeth deserve a nod of thanks), are rendered in the same linear style as the paintings he executed for National Geographic Magazine. Early acquisitions by Sid Richardson, they were purchased by him in 1943.
