19th century oil on canvas painting, full length portrait of Native American leader, Osceola (1804-1838). Depicts the warrior in full attire holding a long rifle in the foreground, against a landscape background depicting two warriors in the distance. Painted in the manner of a 1838 McKenney and Hall lithograph depicting Osceola. Relined, scattered inpainting, especially background area (black light photo included). Sight: 23 1/2"H x 16 1/2" W, framed: 27 1/2" H x 20 1/2"W. Note: Osceola, also known as William Powell, was a Seminole Indian leader who led successful battles against five U.S. Generals. At the time of his death (in a Charleston, S.C. prison), he was said to have been "the most famous American Indian," and his passing made headlines around the globe.
