  • Painting Description

    "Petalesharro (Generous Chief) Pawnee 1822" is a distinguished portrait painted by the American artist Charles Bird King. This artwork is part of a larger collection of portraits commissioned by the United States government to document and preserve the likenesses of Native American leaders and dignitaries who visited Washington, D.C., during the early 19th century. King, renowned for his skill in portraiture, was tasked with capturing the visages of these important figures, and his work has since become a valuable historical record.

    Petalesharro, also known as Generous Chief, was a prominent leader of the Pawnee tribe, known for his bravery and diplomatic skills. His name, which translates to "Generous Chief," reflects his reputation for magnanimity and leadership within his community. The portrait of Petalesharro is notable not only for its artistic merit but also for its cultural and historical significance. It provides a rare and invaluable glimpse into the appearance and attire of a prominent Native American leader of the time.

    In the portrait, Petalesharro is depicted with a dignified and composed expression, wearing traditional Pawnee attire that includes intricate beadwork and feathers. King's attention to detail and his ability to convey the subject's character and status are evident in the meticulous rendering of the clothing and the thoughtful portrayal of Petalesharro's face. The painting is characterized by its realistic style, a hallmark of King's work, which aimed to present an accurate and respectful representation of his subjects.

    The portrait of Petalesharro is housed in the Smithsonian Institution's National Portrait Gallery, where it continues to be an important piece for both art historians and those interested in Native American history. It stands as a testament to the rich cultural heritage of the Pawnee people and the complex history of Native American and United States relations during the 19th century. Through King's artistry, the legacy of Petalesharro and his contributions to his people are preserved for future generations to appreciate and study.
