Details

Part of the Bodmer-Caitlin series. Current retail value is $125,000. This is in the permanent collection of the Phoenix Art Museum and the Scottsdale Museum of the West. “My first piece in this series is a full figure of “Addih-Hiddisch, Hidatsa Chief” as painted in 1833 by Karl Bodmer. Bodmer wrote of his subject that he was a great warrior and chief and the geometric patterns on his body were tattoos, not paint. He wore a Euro-American hat, carried a trade tomahawk with a scalp lock attached and a peace medal around his neck.” – John Coleman, CAA. Donated from a private collection, New Mexico. 100% of proceeds go to a 501(c)(3) foundation in support of the arts.
