  • Painting Description

    "Tshusik a Chippeway Woman" is a portrait by the American artist Charles Bird King, known for his depictions of Native Americans and significant figures in early American history. Painted in the 19th century, this work is part of King's broader efforts to document the appearances and cultural attire of indigenous peoples, many of whom were leaders or delegates visiting Washington, D.C. at the time. King's portraits are particularly valuable for their historical significance, as they provide a visual record of Native American dress and features during a period of intense change and upheaval for their cultures.

    The portrait of Tshusik, which is less commonly referenced in comparison to King's more famous works, captures the likeness of a Chippewa (Ojibwe) woman, a member of one of the largest Native American tribes in North America. The Chippewa were known for their intricate beadwork, woven textiles, and quill embroidery, elements that may be reflected in the attire of the subject. King's attention to detail in the representation of clothing and accessories provides insight into the Chippewa's artistic traditions and the individual's status within the tribe.

    As with many of King's portraits, "Tshusik a Chippeway Woman" would have been created during a period when Native American delegations were often brought to the nation's capital to negotiate treaties and discuss affairs with the United States government. These visits provided King with the opportunity to paint members of various tribes. Unfortunately, many of King's original works, including this portrait, were destroyed in the Smithsonian fire of 1865. However, the importance of King's work endures through the lithographs made by artists such as James Otto Lewis, Henry Inman, and others who reproduced the originals before their loss.

    The portrait is an example of the early 19th-century American portraiture tradition and reflects the complex dynamics of cultural exchange, colonialism, and representation during this era. It contributes to the understanding of how Native Americans were perceived and depicted by European American artists and serves as a poignant reminder of the individuals and cultures affected by the expansion of the United States.
