Joseph Tayadaneega called the Brant, the Great Captain of the Six Nations

1779; 1751-1800
Portrait of Captain Joseph Brant or Thayendanegea, a Mohawk chief, holding a hatchet or tomahawk with feathered headdress, metal gorget and armbands.

Romney painted this portrait in London when Brant visited the city with Sir William Johnson, the royal commissioner of Indian affairs in America. Lord George Germain had a box of prints of the painting made and gave them to Brant as a gift. Today the painting is in the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa. This print is described as a "scratch letter proof--1st State."
