        • James Bama, "Oldest Living Crow Indian" 1981
          Jul. 29, 2023

          James Bama, "Oldest Living Crow Indian" 1981

          Est: $300 - $600

          Offered in this lot is a James Bama print, "Oldest Living Crow Indian," 1981, signature on bottom left corner. "Portrayed here at the age 91, Robert Yellowtail was the oldest living Crow Indian. When I first spotted him, he was sitting proud and erect on the back of his horse, as I have portrayed him here. Just a few minutes later, he spurred his horse and took off with the agility and bearing of a 20 year old. The colors in the bead work used for Indian costumes are very significant as you can usually identify a particular tribe by the colors they wear. Most beads used today are 'white man's beads' and are rather garish. The challenge I find in painting a contemporary Indian in costume is to harmonize the colors for the sake of art. James Bama (1926-2022) was an American artist known for his realistic paintings and etchings of Western Subjects. Life in Wyoming led to his comment, "Here an artist can trace the beginnings of Western history, see the first buildings, the oldest wagons, saddles and guns, and be up close to the remnants of Indian culture ... And you can stand surrounded by nature's wonders." Bama is considered by many as the most "realistic" illustrator in a galaxy of talented artists. Through his simple, yet powerful compositions, he breathes life and humanity into his subjects. Critics and collectors classify him as a Western artist. He calls himself an "American Realist." In a profile piece about artists who have made the successful transition from illustration to painting western art in Art of the West , Bama says,"It was cheaper than having to build a set. I could do winter stuff in summer and summer stuff in winter. I was busy." In an extremely successful twenty-two year career as a commercial artist, he produced book covers, movie posters and illustrations for such notable magazines as The Saturday Evening Post, Argosy and Reader's Digest. Bama's style is marked by detailed realism tempered by a compassionate understanding of his subjects. This print is in very nice condition, no obvious marring noted. Measures 26.25"L x 22"W.*

          Featured in this lot is a James Bama Signed Limited Edition, "Little Star", #553/1500, 1979, hand signed in pencil on the right middle close to the border, COA included. Bama said, "'Little Star' is the Indian name for Millie Cody, the beautiful Navajo maiden who served as my model for this painting. I had the unique opportunity to observe her teaching ancient crafts in Indian dress, going to church in a long pioneer-style gown, and dancing to a Chicago rock group record in hip-huggers. I felt that, if she had entered, she could easily have become Miss Indian America. To me she was."

          James Bama Limited Edition Signed Print

          Est: $600 - $1,200

          Featured in this lot is a James Bama Signed Limited Edition print, "Pre-Columbian Indian with Atlatl", #559/1500, 1979, hand signed on bottom right corner. "In Wyoming, a group of young Indians have set up a working model of a pre-Columbian village in order to teach the primitive crafts of survival. This painting of a young man holding an atlatl (pronounced at'latl) is of a series of pieces I am doing about these Indians. The atlatl is a device dating back to man's Paleolithic Age. It was used by the hunter to enable him to attain greater speed when throwing his spear – a matter that could result in the difference between life and death for him and his tribe. To use it, the hunter fit the notched end of his spear into the hook of the atlatl and swung both back and then forward over his heard, releasing only the spear to make contact with the prey that would provide food, clothing, shelter, tools and utensils."

          LOT OF 4 JAMES BAMA LIMITED EDITION WESTERN ART PRINTS

          Est: -

          Lot of 4 James Bama (1926-2022) Native American Western Limited Edition Prints. Includes titles: "Dan The Mountain Man', "Southwest Indian Father and Son", "Pre-Columbian Indian with Atlatl", "Old Sod House". All pieces are signed limited editions and come in original portfolios. James Bama was born in 1926 and grew up in the Northeast. He followed his early interest in art through New York’s specialized High School of Music and Art and the Art Students League. As a professional, Bama has earned a reputation for several facets of his talent. He freelanced briefly before spending fifteen years at the respected Charles E. Cooper Studios—at the time, the country’s top firm of illustrators—and more freelancing followed. Bama’s activities during this period were highlighted by artwork for the New York Giants football team, the Baseball and Football Halls of Fame, the U.S. Air Force and The Saturday Evening Post. Fans of pop culture may know him best as the artist who portrayed Doc Savage on sixty-two memorable book covers. Then Bama decided it was finally time to do what he most wanted to do. He moved west to Wyoming, where an artist “can trace the beginnings of Western history; see the oldest weapons, saddles and guns and be close to Indian culture.? He sold his first Western fine art painting soon after the move. The distinctive work of James Bama combines tradition with modern realities. In his much-acclaimed studies, Bama shows the contemporary West preserving its traditional culture. His portraits of inhabitants of the plains and mountains capture the true character of the West. Today the paintings of James Bama are part of many prestigious collections. Bama has been represented in major exhibitions throughout the West and has been presented in one-man shows in New York City. Bantam Books published The Western Art of James Bama in 1975 and The Art of James Bama in 1993. Jim was inducted into the Illustrator’s Hall of Fame June 28, 2000. Through his portraits of real people of the new West re-creating their history and heritage, Bama pays homage to the Old West and is renowned in yet another realm of the art world.

          James Bama Limited Edition Signed Print 1480/1500

          Est: $200 - $500

          Featured in this lot is a a signed and numbered limited edition print by James Bama of a pre-Columbian Indian with an Atlatl released in 1974. In Wyoming, a group of young Indians have set up a working model of a pre-Columbian village in order to teach the primitive crafts of survival. This painting of a young man holding an atlatl (pronounced at'latl) is one example. The atlatl is a device dating back to man's Paleolithic Age. It was used by the hunter to enable him to attain greater speed when throwing his spear – a matter that could result in the difference between life and death for him and his tribe. To use it, the hunter fit the notched end of his spear into the hook of the atlatl and swung both back and then forward over his heard, releasing only the spear to make contact with the prey that would provide food, clothing, shelter, tools and utensils. This piece is signed "Bama", dated 1974 and is number 1480 out of 1500. The piece is in good condition with no signs of damage. The frame is sturdy and features a repeating diamond pattern throughout the whole frame. The piece measures 23 1/4" L 27" W.

          3pc James Bama (1926-2022) Native American Western Limited Edition Prints. Includes titles "At A Mountain Man Wedding", "Ken Blackbird", and " Crow Indian Dancer". All pieces are signed limited editions and come in original portfolios. Sheets range from 20.5in x 22in to 23.5in x 22.5in. James Bama was born in 1926 and grew up in the Northeast. He followed his early interest in art through New York’s specialized High School of Music and Art and the Art Students League. As a professional, Bama has earned a reputation for several facets of his talent. He freelanced briefly before spending fifteen years at the respected Charles E. Cooper Studios—at the time, the country’s top firm of illustrators—and more freelancing followed. Bama’s activities during this period were highlighted by artwork for the New York Giants football team, the Baseball and Football Halls of Fame, the U.S. Air Force and The Saturday Evening Post. Fans of pop culture may know him best as the artist who portrayed Doc Savage on sixty-two memorable book covers. Then Bama decided it was finally time to do what he most wanted to do. He moved west to Wyoming, where an artist “can trace the beginnings of Western history; see the oldest weapons, saddles and guns and be close to Indian culture.” He sold his first Western fine art painting soon after the move. The distinctive work of James Bama combines tradition with modern realities. In his much-acclaimed studies, Bama shows the contemporary West preserving its traditional culture. His portraits of inhabitants of the plains and mountains capture the true character of the West. Today the paintings of James Bama are part of many prestigious collections. Bama has been represented in major exhibitions throughout the West and has been presented in one-man shows in New York City. Bantam Books published The Western Art of James Bama in 1975 and The Art of James Bama in 1993. Jim was inducted into the Illustrator’s Hall of Fame June 28, 2000. Through his portraits of real people of the new West re-creating their history and heritage, Bama pays homage to the Old West and is renowned in yet another realm of the art world.
