A Native American man wearing a wide-brimmed hat directly faces the viewer. The man’s expression is indifferent, his hat shading his face. He wears earrings and a necklace, though the latter is absent in this piece’s final watercolor version, Indian Wearing a Hat. The simple yet precise linework captures the essence of Wieghorst’s iconic Western art style.
