Shawnee Chief Tecumseh 1812
by Doug Hall Limited to 350 Giclee on Canvas Prints
In this 200th anniversary of the beginning of the War of 1812, Shawnee Chief Tecumseh is depicted riding horseback through a forest while wearing the British red coat and wielding a musket. Born in March of 1768 in Ohio, he was considered charismatic and an impressive orator and at an early age became the leader of his own band of warriors. Determined to prevent further expansion into Indian-held lands, he spent his life trying to rally the civilized tribes to join forces, to little avail. Involved in many Indian battles prior to the onset of the War of 1812, he allied with the British and was mortally wounded fighting American forces on October 5, 1813 near Ontario, Canada. Not only honored in Canada as a hero and military commander, four U.S. Navy ships have borne his name, along with several U.S. towns.
The artist, Doug Hall, grew up in Southwest Missouri and cannot remember when he did not paint. He now lives on 50 acres surrounded by the Huckleberry State Forest. He has spent a great deal of time studying the history and culture of the native peoples of the Eastern Woodlands and has won many awards for his paintings of their everyday lives. The effect of his dedication to the subject is evident in his paintings.
