Native American women standing with umbrellas, 1980

Oil on canvas
Signed in tandem with the artist's device and dated lower right: Anthony Chee Emerson
34" H x 36" W

  • Notes: The work is typical of Emerson (b. 1963), a contemporary painter of Navajo ancestry known for his stylized figurative paintings of people, animals, and landscapes. A move at a young age from Los Angeles to New Mexico resulted in a growing interest in his own culture and a love of art he studied at college, eventually opening his gallery with his wife in Farmington, NM. It is wonderful to see his stated influences of Chagall and Picasso in this modern portrait of Native American women.
  • Condition: Visual: Generally good condition.

    Blacklight: No evidence of restoration under blacklight. Two pinhead-sized specks of uneven varnish application lower center.

    35" H x 37" W x 1.5" D
