SETH EASTMAN: A Portfolio of North American Indians showcases the former James J. Hill Collection of Seth Eastman watercolors. This important collection changed hands in late 1994 when it was deaccessioned by the James Jerome Hill Reference Library in St. Paul and acquired by W. Duncan MacMillan of Wayzata, Minnesota.
The foremost Pictorial Historian of the American Indian in the nineteenth century. Seth Eastman was a career army officer and talented artist widely appreciated today for his ethnographic detail. Assigned to frontier duty, including a seven-year stint at Fort Snelling in the 1840s, Eastman set out to preserve a visual record of Indian life which was then undergoing rapid change.
