Description


This is a "pencil" of William F. Cody in his later years. This piece was drawn using a very obscure photograph for reference that Karchner obtained from an anonymous source in Washington, D.C. This “pencil” is soon to be archived in the Buffalo Bill Historical Centers private library. For a library of 250,000 photos, the BBHC was shocked they had never seen this portrait of Cody. What a find on Karchners' part!

The overall size of this piece is 12” x 18”. Pencil on heavy-weight illustration board.

Original donated to the Buffalo Bill Historical Center 2004 Art Auction, Cody, WY--Private Collection

I have referenced Karchners work many times in my studies of the American Indians, and I think this is probably the finest rendering I've ever seen of Mr. Cody! It's beautiful!
