This Tranquil Image of Fort Fred Steele... (ca. June 1872), by its artistic commander Colonel Philippe Regis de Trobriand, 13th Infantry, belies the post's relatively brief, but dynamic history (1868-1886). This encampment on the south bank of the North Platte River was the subject of at least six artistic renderings by Colonel de Trobriand, who skillfully depicted military forts to which he was assigned. He also painted portraits of Native Americans and sketched their artifacts. His oil paintings of Chief Joseph hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.
