      Late 18th century Indian Painting

      <p>Hello guys,</p>
      <p>I came across this indian chief painting at the death of my friend's mother.  She had a yard sale and this was the only item I bought as it had belonged to her grandmother who acquired it from her mother in 1902.  There is a letter that came with it which said that there were only two of these paintings in existence as the artist only made two and he gave it to the great grandmother's husband as payment for service.  </p>
      <p>It was shown to a few museums in the 60's for sale, as was told that it is a great musuem piece, and they would purchase  it  around $5000 at that time.  The letter went on to say that in the 80's the family went through hard times and due to family fued it was stored away until the death of my firend's mother who was a Navajo Indiand in Arizona.</p>
      <p> </p>
      <p>The signature says JH Nicholls ( I think)</p>
      <p>If anyone could help me on this I would greatly appreciate it.  Appraisals included.</p>
