At the July 2017 St. Louis ROADSHOW event, paintings appraiser Debra Force talked with a guest named Sarah, who inherited an Elbridge Burbank painting through her grandfather. The oil painting, whose retail value Force estimated at $10,000, is one of many portraits done by Burbank of Native Americans during the late 1800s. Burbank was the only artist to paint Geronimo, a prominent Apache chief and medicine man, from life.
