A homage to George Catlin and Karl Bodmer, two of the earliestÑand finestÑartists of the American West, John ColemanÕs Explorer Artists Series is itself an exploration, in bronze, in three dimensions, of the unparalleled portraits of Native American chiefs, braves and medicine men painted by Catlin and Bodmer in the 1830Õs. Faithful to the two- dimensional originals, Coleman fleshes these Indians out in all their splendor, inviting us to look at the portraits anew and to look behind and around them, to the individuals who posed for them, people who might otherwise have been lost to history, people whose cultures, in some cases, were. Complete sets of the Explorer ArtistÕs Series can be found in the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha, the Booth Museum in Cartersville, Georgia and in important private collections around the nation. Monumental versions of individual works have been purchased by the Phoenix Art Museum as well as other prominent institutions.
