PICTURING INDIAN TERRITORY: PORTRAITS OF THE LAND THAT BECAME OKLAHOMA, 1819-1907. Ed. by B. Byron Price. Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, University of Oklahoma, Norman, 2016.

Publisher's description: Throughout the nineteenth century, the land known as "Indian Territory" was populated by diverse cultures, troubled by shifting political boundaries, and transformed by historical events that were colorful, dramatic, and often tragic. Beyond its borders, most Americans visualized the area through the pictures produced by non-Native travelers, artists, and reporters -- all with differing degrees of accuracy, vision, and skill. The images in Picturing Indian Territory, and the eponymous exhibit it accompanies, conjure a wildly varied vision of Indian Territory's past. Spanning nearly nine decades, these artworks range from the scientific illustrations found in English naturalist Thomas Nuttall's journal to the paintings of Frederic Remington, Henry Farny, and Charles Schreyvogel. The volume's three essays situate these works within the historical narratives of westward expansion, the creation of an "Indian Territory" separate from the rest of the United States, and Oklahoma's eventual statehood in 1907. James Peck focuses on artists who produced images of Native Americans living in this vast region during the pre-Civil War era.
