Four Charcoal prints by Robert Cole Caples depicting American Indians; subjects include an Indian man starting a fire with a stick, an adolescent finger drawing, a child shooting an arrow and a man with a bow. All measure 20" x 16" unframed on heavy paper. Robert Cole Caples lived from 1908-1979. He studied design and art at various institutions and set up a landscape and portrait studio in Reno, Nevada in 1930 after moving west from New York with his father. His interest in portraits soon ceased as he became fixated on Native Americans and their culture. Online Nevada Encyclopedia summarizes his work with the following: Robert Cole Caples was a legend in Northern Nevada before he left for Connecticut in 1958. An expatriate from New York City, he studied at the Art Students League and participated in the Federal Arts Project during the Great Depression. Caples worked in a variety of media including painting, etching, and charcoal, and he penned and illustrated The Potter and His Children, a book that failed to reach appreciative readers. On the other hand, his portfolio, "People of the Silent Land: A Portfolio of Nevada Indians," published by the University of Nevada Press in 1972, is sought by collectors to this day.
