Original Indian School ledger drawing. A very unique piece of Western Art. Depicted in lead crayon and color pencil on old thin stock ledger book, onion skin page.
8 1/4" x 13 1/2". From the Lee Copper Collection origionaly. This pieces is from either the Carlisle Indian Industrial School that was in Pennsylvania, or a place called St. Mary's Indian Boarding School in Wisconsin.
I know that the students were not just children and the schools served as what was referred to as re education schools for adults as well. Thus the the subject matter of some of the drawings. Also, drawings were sent to donors and supporters of the schools as gifts and were covited by many of the recipients. This would account for why thous students of these schools were encouraged to draw these pieces.
Glass frames are inexpensive at Hobby Lobby or you may want to have it professionally framed as it is a very collectible work of historical art. This is a consignment piece. I have been a picker for over 35 years. A Native American Basket Collector for over 40.
