Prince Maxmilian's expedition to America with artist Karl Bodmer in 1832-34 resulted in a hugely important first hand documentation of Plains Indian culture. Maxmilian shared the Bodmer watercolor sketches with his friend and colleague, Swiss anthropologist Heinrich Schinz soon after they returned to Europe. In fact, the very first appearance of Bodmer's Indian subjects in print is in the earliest volumes of Schinz's Natural History of Man. These scarce and important portraits established Bodmer as a painter of Native American Indian subjects.
