Karl Bodmer

Among the foremost artists of the 19th century, who traveled and depicted the lives, habits and dress of Native American, then called "Indian" tribes, is certainly the Swiss Karl Bodmer (109-1893), who accompanied Prince Maximilian zu Wied Neuwied (1782-1867), a renowned German explorer, ethnologist, zoologist and naturalist.

They undertook two two exploratory journeys to America: One to Brasil (1815-1817) and one to the United States of America (1832-1834).

They returned from their journeys with solid scientifically, most valuable, artistically sublime and sophisticated material, which was at the time of publication and is still nowadays of inestimable scientific value and priceless artistic beauty. The original folio edition was small and therefore very rare.

But have a look for yourself.

Here is a link to Prince Maximilian's and Bodmer's work on Brazil.

Printed on China paper and laid down on cardboard

Bodmer dry stamp

Condition: Print on China had been removed from underlaying thick wove paper for unknown reasons, but probably because the underlaying paper was damaged. The print then was laid down on strong paper. Remounting the China paper resulted in the damage of unprinted parts of the China paper in upper and left Margin as well as a tear running about one inch into the image on left. There was also a tear clear across the China paper at very bottom, just above the publishers' addresses (Coblenz, Ackerman and Bertrand. We are trying to document these damages as best we can by way of scans. Except for very minor folds when remounting China paper, the image itself with its outstanding original hand coloring is intact.

Measurements: Image: 30,8 x 44 cm (ca. 12.1 x 17.3")
