See George Catlin's American Indian portraits

An exhibition currently showing at the National Portrait Gallery brings together some works by American artist George Catlin, who toured the western United States in the 1830s, making five trips to document the lives of Native Americans.

Catlin's works were originally put together for a touring exhibition to pique the interest of paying customers, so it seems fitting that this exhibition brings fifty portraits to the gallery until 23rd June, but this time it's free.
