Several years before George Catlin, Alfred Jacob Miller or KarlBodmer ever set foot in the American West, Peter Rindisbachercreated drawings and watercolors of American Indians and frontierlife that today are considered historical, ethnological andartistic rarities. Born in Switzerland in 1806, Rindisbacheremigrated with his family to the Selkirk colony on the Red River ofCanada, filled with promises of a temperate climate and fertileland. Possessing a prodigious talent for drawing, Rindisbacherbecame the colony's unofficial graphic storyteller, recordingpioneer life on the northern American frontier. Most significantly,he depicted the appearances and customs of the local Chippewa,Assiniboine, Cree and Eastern Sioux Indian populations in accuratedetail.
After several disastrous floods and crop failures, the settlers ofthe Red River colony abandoned their settlement in 1826.Rindisbacher and his family moved south to farm the Gratiotsettlement, in what is now the western end of the Illinois andWisconsin border. Here Rindisbacher again attracted attention forhis depictions of the local Indians and his miniature portraits offellow settlers. The artist spent the remainder of his short lifein Saint Louis where he moved in 1829 and opened a studioadvertising, "Miniature & Landscape Paintings, on the mostreasonable terms."
Three years following Rindisbacher's death in 1834, a colorlithograph of his painting Hunting the Buffalo became thefrontispiece for the first volume of the folio edition of TheIndian Tribes of North America, with Biographical Sketches andAnecdotes of the Principal Chief, a three-volume collection oflarge plates of Indian paintings, published in Philadelphia byEdward C. Biddle for Thomas L. McKinney and James Hall. Thispublication secured the artist's status as a premier recorder of avanishing way of life on the American frontier.
Rindisbacher is known to have produced more than 124 paintingsduring his career. Forty of his artworks are currently held by theLibrary and Archives of Canada, Ottawa. Other large concentrationsof his paintings are located in the collections of the West PointMuseum of the United States Military Academy and the GilcreaseMuseum in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

CATALOGUE NOTE
Peter Rindisbacher moved from Switzerland with his family when he was 15 years old to the Red River Colony near present day Winnipeg in 1821. He found employment with the Hudson's Bay Company, the effective controller of the area and started selling his watercolors to supplement his salary. Already noticed as an artistic prodigy in Switzerland, his depictions of Indians became an immediate sensation and much in demand. However, a great flood in 1826 decimated the farms of the Red River Colony and many of the settlers including the Rindisbachers left for Wisconsin. The family then moved to St. Louis in 1829 where Rindisbacher continued as an artist but would die at 28 of cholera. While in Canada he produced the earliest drawn body of work to record the appearances and daily lives of the Western Plains Indians, preceding George Catlin whose first trip took place from 1830-1836. This watercolor is dated 1825. It is inscribed on the back with the name of Robert Parker Pelly who was the Governor of the Red River Colony in that year.
