Karl Bodmer was a Swiss-French etcher, lithographer, draftsman and painter. He came from Zurich. As a thirteen-year-old, Bodmer began training as an eraser, lithographer and engraver in his uncle's company. In 1825 he became self-employed with his brother as engraver.

In 1828, Bodmer moved to Koblenz to produce etchings and paintings for tourists. He quickly made a name for himself with his pictures of landscapes along the rivers Rhine, Mosel and Lahn. Finally, the explorer Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied became aware of him, who was planning an expedition to the North American Indian territories. To this end, he hired Bodmer, who was to document the journey visually and as detailed as possible.

In May 1832, the tour group set sail and reached Boston on the 4th of July. The American East was suffering from a cholera epidemic. The expedition left Boston and reached New Harmony, Indiana, where it was overtaken by cholera at the end of October. The prince and other travelers fell ill. So Bodmer initially continued the journey alone; he came to New Orleans. After her recovery, the prince and the rest of the group traveled on. In mid-March 1833 the expedition was reunited and continued on its way west. They met on their journey numerous Native peoples know and documented them. Bodmer would later say that he had acquaintances among the Europeans, but found friends among the Indians. He did not want to return to Europe, but stay with the Indians, but Prince Max could finally persuade him to return. In mid-July 1834, they embarked from New York to Le Havre, where they arrived in early August. They had been traveling for over two years.

Back in Europe, they returned to Germany. In 1835 Bodmer moved to Paris. He had brought over 400 pictures from the USA, whose implementation in Stiche he had to monitor. This work took years; the prince's travelogue, with illustrations by Bodmer, first appeared in 1839, five years after the expedition's completion. In 1848, Bodmer moved to Barbizon because of the February Revolution and also because of a cholera epidemic. He accepted French citizenship and continued his artistic work in various techniques. In 1884, Bodmer, ill and impoverished, returned to Paris. Deaf and blind he died there in 1893. © Meisterdrucke
