This portrait of Laban Little Wolf's wife, Willow Woman, was not exhibited repeatedly in 1908, first at the Closson Galleries in Cincinnati, then in Indianapolis and St. Louis.  It appeared next to a portrait of her husband (#419) in a large, 1912 showing at the University Club in Cincinnati titled An Exhibition of Pictures of the West that November.
