Chief Wolf Robe, Cheyenne

Chief Wolf Robe, Cheyenne
A recent visitor to this web page pointed out to me that I had mistakenly attributed the source photo for this painting to Frank A. Rinehart. He is correct in suggesting that the original photo was actually taken by De Lancey W. Gill in 1909. Rinehart shot a similar photo and also another well known photo of Wolf Robe which is considered to be the inspiration for the “Indian Head Nickel.” There are numerous references to Wolf Robe on the web including his winning of the Benjamin Harrison Peace Medal. This painting is owned by my sister and her husband.
