“Lewis and Clark on the Lower Columbia” depicts a scene from an American expedition in the early 1800s. Captain Lewis and his Second Lieutenant, William Clark, had been commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson to explore and map the new territory. There journey was perilous and lasted for two years. In this print, the two explorers together with local Native American Indians are travelling in a convoy of rowing boats down the Columbia River. The boats have decorative helms and one appears to be sculptured to resemble the head of a bird. An officer stands guard with his rifle in the lead boat. The banks of the river are heavily wooded and a thick mist is hanging over the tree tops. The colors are soft pastels of blues, greys and cream with tinges of lilac and pink. They blend to give an almost monochromatic feel. This print will make an ideal gift for an American history buff and would add character to a den, home library or cabin retreat.
