Oligocene (32 million yeard ago) in the northern Great Plains of Badlands National Park, South Dakota: Painting by Robert J. Barber

1995-1996

Paintings

37 x 128 cm.

Hypertragulus (foreground), Merycoidodon (middle ground), Hyracodon (background), Mesohippus, Hoplophoneus (a saber-toothed nimravid carnivore) and Archaeotherium South Dakota. The forest consists primarily of mixed deciduous trees and conifers, confined to the vicinity of the stream and nearby floodplain. Barber made twelve paintings for the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Orientation Center, which introduces visitors to the key concepts presented in the Museum's fossil halls: the Hall of Vertebrate Origins, the David H. Koch Dinosaur Wing, and the Lila Acheson Wallace Wing of Mammals and Their Extinct Relatives. The paintings were removed in September 2015 when the Museum began to renovate the Center.
