A multi-faceted artist best known for his depictions of Native Americans and wildlife, Edwin Willard Deming was born in Ashland, Ohio, in 1860. He received his training at the Art Students League and spent a year in Paris where he studied with Boulanger and Lefebvre. Deming had a long-standing relationship with Native Americans. As a child he played with Sac, Fox, and Winnebago Indian children in western Illinois. During Deming’s first trip to the American West in 1887, he visited the Apache and Pueblo Indians in the Southwest, and the Umatillas in Oregon. In 1893, Deming and fellow artist DeCost Smith spent time among the Sioux and Crow Indians to write and illustrate about life among these people for Outing magazine.
