William Robinson Leigh A Low-Down Trick, 1948 Located in the American West Private Dining Room, J Paul’s Italian Steakhouse

Leigh, a painter of the American West and writer, developed a profound love for nature during his youth in West Virginia.

Rumored to be a direct descendant of Pocahontas, his connection to Native American heritage fueled his fascination with Native American life. Serving as a field artist for the American Museum of Natural History, he ventured to East Africa in 1926 and 1928, capturing the essence of wild animals through his paintings. In addition to his artistic endeavors, Leigh authored books and short stories.
