This wonderful piece comes from the Rhodes-Nadler Collection, and this is the first opportunity that several of the pieces from this collection are being offered for sale to the public. Born with feisty energy and boundless curiosity, nationally acclaimed artist Margarete Bagshaw left this world on Thursday March 19, 2015 - 9 weeks to the day of her stroke - having forged a legacy as a brilliant Modernist painter, tireless innovator, generous friend and beloved wife. She was 50 years young, her head still swimming with the shapes and colors she hoped to paint. She leaves behind her husband, soulmate and business partner, Dan McGuinness; children Helen and Forrest Tindel; and a family of friends who share in mourning this devastating loss. Her grandmother, Santa Clara Pueblo painter Pablita Velarde, became part of a first wave of artists fueling a national demand for traditional Native art. Her mother, Helen Hardin, joined a second wave of artists bridging traditional and contemporary art. Carried into a third wave, Margarete saw herself not as a Native artist, but as a Modernist whose works sometimes imbued elements of Native iconography, but always celebrated abstract geometric patterns and luminous layers of color.
