Gift of Paul Mellon
Catlin described this ceremony: "From excessive drought, the women begin to cry; their maize and vines are withering up, when the doctors order the young men to commence this ceremony of summoning the clouds and commanding it to rain, and they always succeed, for the ceremony never ceases, night or day, until rain begins to fall."
Typed on label: AMNH 193, Catlin 186, long explanation, Back UL: A (over 139), pencil 15-1/4, 211/2, Front LL: A (over 193), Top: 186 FR: label ?3, Bottom: typed label
The invoice incorrectly states a total of 384 paintings. There were, in fact, 389 paintings purchased, 351 of which Mr. Mellon gave to the National Gallery of Art, Washington, in December 1965. 24 given to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, November 1985; 4 given to the Amon Carter Museum of Western Art, December 1986; and the remaining 10 to the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, December 1986.
