C. M. Gilbert 1902 Chief Multnomah of Willamette Painting on Buffalo Hide
Design Plus Gallery presents an original painting by C.M. Gilber, 1902. A portrait of Chief Multnomah is depicted on an unmounted Buffalo hide. The chief was an 18th-century Willamette leader in the Columbia River Valley, who held significant power in his prime. The unusual medium shows wear and repairs can be seen on the back, as might be expected for the antique painting.
