Alfred Jacob Miller was hired to accompany a 19th century fur-trade caravan and chronicle the daily events and make detailed drawings of the 1837 Green River Rendezvous. Along the way, Miller painted two different French-Canadian men named Pierre who traveled with the caravan. One was a daring hunter and the other a hired hand of Captain W.D. Stewart. Although Roters titled this print Pierre, it does not resemble either Pierre in the group. Roters appeared to have based this portrait on another one of the hired hands, Auguste. This image was cropped and signed by the artist from the full-size cartoon Supply Caravan sub commander Etienne Provost and Stewart's Hired Hand Pierre. Print measures 26 inches by 12 inches.
