More About this Item

Description: Artist: ROSA BONHEUR (1822-1899) Size: 29 x 39 3/8 in./73.8 x 99.7 cm Imp. & Lith Weiners / Ch. Wall, Paris Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show toured France in May 1889. While there, Cody called upon the celebrated portrait artist Rosa Bonheur for a sitting at her chateau. That painting served as a model for this poster, created to promote Wild Bill's show in 1905. This version differs from previously-seen examples: the "Last of the Great Scouts” text is absent, the format is slightly smaller, and the image appears to have been redrawn from scratch to create a similar but slightly different composition.
