In the summer of 1874 the 4th Earl of Dunraven and Mount Earl (1841–1926) organised a hunting expedition through Canada to the American West. An account of his sometimes hazardous journey was published as ‘The Great Divide: Travels in the Upper Yellowstone in the Summer of 1874’ (1876). Included in his party was the young artist Valentine Bromley who, disenchanted by his companions’ pursuit of animals, and therefore something of a disappointment to his patron, particularly enjoyed a two-day visit to the Crow Agency, 30 miles from Fort Ellis, Montana, near the town of Bozeman, ‘sketching the busy domestic world of the Crow village with enthusiasm’.
