Joseph Brant by Don Troiani

 

"New commissioned watercolor/Gouache of the great Mohawk leader Joseph Brant or Thayendanegea  The figure is mostly based on a period description of him.  There are a good number of paintings of him and his facial characteristics and skin tones vary widely in each. I went mostly with the earlier portraits .To read more about him ." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Brant
