    Description

    Lakota War Chief Rain-In-The-Face: A Fine Nineteenth Century D. F. Barry Photograph. A 5" x 7" sepia photograph of him seated holding an octagonal barrel Winchester lever-action rifle. Barry's blind stamp is found on the front as well as on the studio mat. The photograph is captioned in the negative "RAIN-IN-THE-FACE" at the lower right corner. The image is mounted to the studio mat so the verso details, if any, are not available. Rain-In-The-Face was present at the Battle of Little Bighorn and legend has it that he personally dispatched Custer, a claim he later denied. Though the focus is a bit soft on this remarkable image many interesting details appear upon closer scrutiny, such as the chief's necklaces, metal cuffs, feathers, neckerchief, and hair ties.
