The Renaissance of the American Indian

Interior View of the Medicine Lodge, Mandan O-kee-pa Ceremony, 1832 Mandan/Numakiki oil
On the occasion of an exhibition in the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington about George Catlin, a painter of indians, the Neue Zürcher Zeitung thinks about an renaissance of the indian. The collection, worth visiting at least online, features 32 pictures the painter produced in the 19th century. They are a little bit peculiar melancolic and with simple romance. The feuilletonist of the NZZ thinks about this exhibition as remarkable and sees a renaissance of indians, beeing influenced by 9/11. The indian as noble savage build some counterpart to the evil terrorist, he writes.
