Primitive Sailing by the Winnebago Indians, Upper Mississippi
Gift of Paul Mellon
Having lost his first series of paintings through bankruptcy, Catlin began in the 1850s to reconstruct his Indian Gallery by painting the scenes again. This second series he called his "cartoon" collection, because the works were painted on paperboard. The word "cartoon" derives from the Italian word for paper, "cartone."
