White Bird (Cheyenne/ Nez Percé), Buffalo Hunting Scene, 1894-95. Paint on muslin; 75 x 23 in. Denver Art Museum: Gift of Mrs. John R. Livermore, 1958.192
This painting on muslin has a unique history. Captain Richard Livermore was an army soldier stationed at Ft. Keogh, Montana, in the 1890s, where he lived in a small log cabin. Livermore covered the inside walls with sheets of muslin for warmth and comfort and invited native friends to decorate them with drawings.
