HANDSOME BARRY CABINET OF RAIN-IN-THE-FACE AND WOMAN. Rain-In-The-Face poses for a studio shot with an unidentified woman - we can only assume she is his wife, as she rests one arm casually on his shoulder. The great chief sits, wearing a three piece suit, and holds what appears to be a mink pelt in his lap. His hair is unbraided, but bound with cloth ties. To his right stands his wife, wearing traditional Indian garb, several long necklaces, a quill choker and delicate dangling earrings. Image measures approximately 3¼" x 5¼" and is affixed to Barry's 4¼" x 6½" red-ink imprinted matte board. On verso, Barry's Chief Gall logo, advertising "Photographs of All the Noted Indians." The corners of the backing board show minor wear, but these do not detract in any way from this impressive cabinet of a great Lakota chief.
