Catlin George - Attacking the Grizzly Bear

Fine Art Prints of Distinction


A Museum Quality Print of Attacking the Grizzly Bear by George Catlin. This painting was completed by the artist in the year 1844 and captures the primitive violence of a struggle between the Grizzly Bears and the Indians of the Plains. This hand colored lithograph was from the book North American Indian Portfolio - Hunting Scenes and Amusements of the Rocky Mountains and Prairies of America. This book and the illustrations by Catlin filled a need for the growing want of the American Public for all things Western and Indian related. The scene shows a group of four Indians on horseback that are being attacked by two large Grizzly Bears. The bears are tearing into the horses with one already being hit by the lances or spears of the Indians. One Indian has a homemade tomahawk that looks like he used the butt of a rifle and put a knife blade in the center, he is getting ready to drive this into the bear also. A great colorful print of the Wild American West. Please be aware that we have greatly changed this print, the original has a white sky that has really yellowed over the years and did not look very good. We turned the sky blue and made it, in our opinion, look better, however it does not look like the original artwork.
