    EXCEPTIONAL BARRY IMPERIAL CABINET OF SITTING BULL. Handsome sepia-toned bust image depicts Sitting Bull gazing intently into the camera's eye. The great chief wears a long-sleeved shirt made of floral-printed fabric and wears his hair in two long braids. Seemingly frozen, he sits stoically waiting for the photographer to finish his work. Image measures approximately 7½" x 5" and is affixed to one of Barry's photographer mounts, which reads at lower edge, "Sitting Bull. Copyright by D.F. Barry, 1885, Bismarck, Dakota." Minor wear to mount edges, but otherwise in excellent condition.

    Provenance: The Chris Kortlander Collection

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
