CreatorWinter, George, 1810-1876
ContributorsArnold, A.
DescriptionHandwritten letter From: George Winter, Lafayette, May 29, 1865 To: A. Arnold, New York ALS, 4 p. (one sheet, folded)
Description ContinuedRecalls their association when he was a student in New York. G.W. has found much scope for his artistic development in Indiana, has developed new subjects rather than following the beaten path, but despite his efforts to educate the public artistically (through annual distributions, accompanied with lectures), they have not been responsive, (little purchasing of art even by the wealthy). There are many subjects he has painted that he would like to develp further, including (some described briefly): "Going to the Grave", "The Internment", "After the Funeral' "The Council at Lake Kee-waw-knay", "The Game of Moccasin", (one of which is owned by J.D. Deprees, Superintendent of Printing in Washington), "The Game of Yeuh-yeuh-chick-chick", western views including scenes of the Wabash. Smiller of New York engraved two of his views of "Big Snake Creek". Currently he is completing a series of watercolor sketches of Indians based on his meetings years ago, which will be accompanied with notes and "traditions" and bound in book form. He had begun this for an English friend who suddenly died and has enough material to make several volumes. Another interesting subject is Bishop Brute's sermon to the Pottawattamis in 1838. Would appreciate a commission from him.
