    Description

    James Otto Lewis Print: PACH-E-PO: A Pottowattomie Chief. Hand colored, 11.75" x 19". Painted "at the treaty of Massinnewa 1827." Lithographed by Lehman & Duval. The caption reads, "This young chief is the son of ME-O-NE-ME, a chief who served with Gen. Harrison during the late war and was kill'd at the River Thames."

    James Lewis, born in Michigan, began painting Native Americans in 1823. Between 1825 and 1828, the United States Indian Department commissioned him to attend treaty ceremonies. While at these ceremonies, Lewis rendered portraits and interviewed chiefs and subsequently published the first collection of native North American portraits, the North American Aboriginal Port-Folio. Lithographers George Lehman and Peter S. Duval worked together as a firm in Philadelphia from 1835 through 1837, when Lehman left the firm and the name of the firm was changed. The Pottawatomi lived in the upper Mississippi River region until their lands were gradually take away by treaties such as the Treaty of Massinnewa. Contains some minor dampstains in the left margin. Fine. From the U. I. "Chick" and Cecilia Harris Collection.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
