Goyena family, Bisonte con palmeras (Bison with Palm Trees), ca. 1825-1850, watercolor, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Teodoro Vidal Collection, 1996.91.16
This unusual and charming miniature of a bison cavorting on a beach may have been adapted from a popular print of an American bison by the artist-naturalist Titian Ramsey Peale. The bison was a species that only recently had been discovered earlier in the century, making it unlikely that a live bison had been transported to Puerto Rico.
