Charles Bird King (September 26, 1785 – March 18, 1862) was an American portrait artist, best known for his portrayals of significant Native American leaders and tribesmen. Charles Bird King was born in Newport, Rhode Island, the only child of Deborah (nee Bird) and Zebulon King, a American Revolutionary veteran and captain. The family traveled west after the war, but when King was four years old, his father was killed and scalped by Native Americans near Marietta, Ohio.

King painted from life Indian leaders of at least twenty tribes. These portraits were later handsomely reproduced as hand colored lithographs in Thomas McKenney and James Hall’s three-volume classic, History of the Indian Tribes of North America, published in 1837. McKenney and Hall’s endeavor was an artistic and technological achievement. Portraits at the smithsonian. Charles Bird King’s Indian Portraits.

Charles Bird King was an American portrait painter that was commissioned by McKenney to paint the portraits of the Indians.

Thomas McKenney, United States superintendent of Indian trade in Georgetown, then port of entry for the District of Columbia, conceived the idea of developing a government collection of portraits of prominent Indians who visited Washington.

These cards are absolutely fantastic. They come in a book, which I was a bit surprised about (kind of like a book of paper dolls) but which is kind of neat for ease of viewing. The cards come on a perforated sheet of 4 so when you open the book, you see a spread of 8 cards. The cards detach easily from the perforations. I found it very easy to trim off the perforated edge with a cheap paper trimmer, but I know a lot of postcard buyers don't like to do so, so please keep in mind that each card will have TWO perforated edges. The front cover gives some historical data about the context in which the portraits were made, and the back cover provides additional information about the subjects of each card beyond the name and date, if known.

I highly recommend these cards (if you don't mind a little perforation) to send or to keep and enjoy for yourself.

I matted and framed several of these for a cabin. The colors are vivid, and the size of the portraits lends itself easily to precut mats and standard frames - so I got a great look for a low price. They are beautiful.

These Post Cards are beautiful and to pretty to even take out of the book. Even more then I had expected. Using in a display case for an exhibit at my job.
