George Catlin's MotherTerry Gianzinetti
Can anyone tell me the story of Catlin's mother?
Where she and her mother were living when they were captured by indians, which tribe, the conditions of her release/capture, when she met and married Catlin.
Whatever information I can get about her would be most helpful..thank you
I have a painting that I bought at an old antiques store in Williston North Dakota. I havn't paid any attention to it at all until today. I some of George Catlin's paintings and his brush strokes are very similar to mine as is his use of color. The painting hung for years in a bar in a town just west of Ft. Union called Mondak Montana. The town basically burned down before 1915 and never came back. At one time it was a major supply (mailny liquor!)town for the Missouri Riverway. Is this worth investigation?
