An early specialist in watercolor scenes of frontier life, Peter Rindisbacher  is credited as being "the first pioneer artist recording genre of Western Indians".  (Samuels, 400).   He was born in Upper Emmenthal, Canton Bern in Switzerland in 1806, and received some art training before moving in 1821 with his family to western Canada  where they joined a colony on the Red River settled by the Earl of Selkirk.  Along the way during the trip, Rindisbacher sket (showing 500 of 2658 characters).
