This full length portrait of a Native American dressed in flowing ceremonial robes and holding a sacred Eagle feather fan is a fine example of Ned Jacob’s skill and dexterity with charcoal. He is able to imbue his subject with individuality and a definite personality. There are no superfluous details and no background, just a simple picture that is both simultaneously specific and universal. The drawing is quite typical of Jacob’s style, execution, and subject matter.
