An interesting painting

A painting of a young Piankeshaw man
An original watercolor, framed and attached to the mat background, an inscription on the mat in French: "Jeune Sauvage de la NATION DES PYANKASHAWS au pays des Illinois. Desine d'apres l'original. An 9. Par le C.en Portier Ing.r de la Marine." (A Young Savage from the Piankeshaw nation, Illinois country. Conceived after the original. 1801. By Citizen Portier, Naval engineer.)
