An antique portrait of an American Indian Chief “Masmego”. It is an oil painting on canvas, framed. It is signed and painted by George Debereiner who was a member of the CIncinnati Art Academy, and known for his Indian portraits. Although his work rarely surfaces, he was a contemporary of Sharp and Farny. His signature is etched into the canvas in the upper right corner, with “Masmego” in oil above the signature.
Condition: Good with only some inpaint visible under ultra-violet light. This inpaint consists of washy areas relegated to the sitter’s chest and shoulders. No inpaint visible in the face or near the signature or title – NOT relined – Frame is newer, in good condition with very minor marks. (some remarks made by Cowan’s 2002)
