PURSUIT OF THE HORIZON

Good adventure- and at the same time a fantastic, fascinating and colorful biography of a painter, George Catlin, who recorded the American Indian as has no other painter. His was an exciting life, as he traveled feverishly through the West, painting portraits of Indians, recording their tribal festivals, winning their confidence. The period- early half of the 19th century- then his rejection -- finally his death, penniless, in 1872, makes a true biographical-adventure of an unusual figure.
