About the Artist
Robert Griffing is an artist well-known and respected for his historically accurate and detailed paintings of Eastern Woodland Native peoples of the 18th Century. Many of the paintings feature the encroachment of Europeans and their culture into Native lands and society and as such, many of his paintings feature a conflict.
But the newly commissioned "The Canandaigua Treaty" painting features a shining moment of peace - a moment when the elder government, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the very young nation of the United States negotiated and signed iinto a treaty that has lasted for 216 years.If you wish to learn more about Robert Griffing and see some examples of his work, please see the artist's own webpage at www.robertgriffing.com or the brief video biography of Robert Griffing that follows:
