American Drawings

The tradition of drawing in America long precedes the arrival of Europeans, dating back to approximately 4000 B.C. Rendered in charcoal on the walls of caves in Tennessee, Native American drawings depict serpents and hieroglyphic markings, among other iconography. The various tribes that populated regions throughout North America each had their distinctive artistic styles and traditions.

Prior to European colonization, Native Americans used animal hides as the support for their drawings. Later, they adopted parchment paper that they traded with early settlers. These drawings provide illuminating windows into the daily lives of Native Americans and illustrate events ranging from religious ceremonies to hunting expeditions and tribal battles.
