Karl Bodmer (1809-1893) was an admired artist best known for his American Indian prints for Prince Maxmillian of Weid. Hammerton was quite taken with Bodmer's etchings: "There is hardly a bird or a quadruped of W. Europe that he has not drawn, and drawn, too, with a closeness of observation satisfactory alike to the artist & the naturalist. The bird or beast is always the central subject, but he generally surrounds them with a graceful landscape, full of intricate & mysterious suggestions, with here & there some plant in clear definition, drawn with perfect fidelity & care.
