Karl Bodmer was a Swiss painter who accompanied Prince Maximillian on an expedition across the American West in 1832. During this expedition, the party encountered many of the Indians described by Lewis and Clark. Bodmer's detailed sketches and watercolors are an important visual record of these cultures. The images in the collection are hand-colored engravings based on Bodmer's watercolors that appeared in a fifty-copy limited edition set of Lewis and Clark's journals edited by Reuben Gold Thwaites in 1904.
