Buffalo Bill in western art

By most accounts, William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody was the most famous celebrity on the planet at the turn of the 20th century. His Wild West extravaganza traveled for some 30 years in America and Europe. Writers penned innumerable accounts of the Great Showman's exploits. And artists, then and now, captured his likeness in sketches, paintings, engravings, and sculptures. In fact, a look at the Whitney Western Art Museum's Buffalo Bill holdings truly tell the life story of William F. Cody. Take a look at these images to gain a perspective on his life and times. What is your impression of his looks? His adventures? Is there anything about which you're skeptical? We welcome your comments!
