A Pawnee Chief Watercolor. 30 x 23,5 cm Located and dated lower left Washington 1860. - Pawnee Chiefs in War Costumes Watercolor. 22 x 27 cm Located and dated lower left Washington 1860. There are other versions of our two subjects, with variations, preserved in the Franco-American museum of Blérancourt. The inscription Washington corresponds to Saintin's address in Paris in 1860 (rue Washington). A native of the Aisne, Jules Émile Saintin entered the Beaux-Arts de Paris in 1845. He was a student of Martin Drolling, François-Edouard Picot and Achille Leboucher. From 1853 until his death, he exhibited at the Salon. In 1854, Saintin stayed in New York where he worked as a portraitist. He also painted landscapes. He brought back many sketches and drawings, especially of Indians, which he used in the composition of many works with "American" subjects when he returned to France. He returned to Paris in 1860 and set up his studio at 11, rue de Washington. In 1876 he was appointed curator of the Philadelphia World's Fair, organized on the occasion of the centenary of American independence.
