      • GRACE RAVLIN INDIAN DANCE OIL PAINTING ON CANVAS
        Mar. 02, 2024

        GRACE RAVLIN INDIAN DANCE OIL PAINTING ON CANVAS

        Est: $5,000 - $10,000

        American 1873-1956, Artists signature on bottom right corner, Some moisture damage across back of the canvase's bottom edge, Frame measures 32 1/2 x 41 inches, Canvas measures 28 x 36 inches. Grace Ravlin took one art class as an elective in high school and saw her future unroll before her like a magic carpet. She rode this carpet to the Art Institute of Chicago, then to further studies with William Merritt Chase in Philadelphia and then to Paris and Venice to complete her training. Ravlin returned to the United States, painting in the Southwest, including New Mexico, and exhibiting at the Panama-Pacific Exhibition in 1915. After a detour as a Red Cross nurse at the end of World War I, she returned to life as an artist-adventurer. Ravlin was a tireless and fearless traveler, painting in France, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Morocco, and Tunisia. In 1924, her works were exhibited alongside Robert Henri's at the prestigious Macbeth Gallery in New York. Ravlin knew many of the Taos Founders, especially Walter Ufer. In fact, Ravlin often used Ufer's Chicago studio when he was in New Mexico. Ravlin sometimes referred to herself as an "ethnographic painter," but the sensations a painting such as Corn Dance creates in the viewer, mirrors the vibrations of the dancers across the plaza. Ravlin worked in a post-impressionist mode: thick paint, rhythmic brushstrokes, and the use of color to create contour and resonance

        Grace Ravlin (American, 1873-1956) Cochiti Corn Dancers

        Est: $10,000 - $15,000

        Grace Ravlin (American, 1873-1956) Cochiti Corn Dancers oil on canvas signed Ravlin (lower right) 24 x 29 inches Provenance: Collection of Leonard Stark, Chicago, Illinois The paint in Grace Ravlin's Cochiti Corn Dancers swirls around the kiva, a round, partly subterranean sacred space where Pueblo ceremonies are held. Kivas date back before the rise of the Katsina Cult, but the Katsina appear to have adapted them for their own ritual purposes. As seen in the painting, steps lead to a small platform and a ladder leads down into the ceremonial area. Some kivas a square while others, like this one, are round. The subterranean space and the shape of the kiva may have something to do with creation and generative power. In Ravlin's composition, the bottom half of the painting functions as ripples round the kiva while the people flow up the steps and spread out round the edge. From our point of view, the ladder rises above the clouds and touches the blue of the sky, blue mirroring the blue in the attire of the celebrants. -James D. Balestrieri Property from the Collection of Leonard Stark, Chicago, Illinois

        Grace Ravlin (American, 1873-1956) Moqui Ceremonial Dance

        Est: $8,000 - $12,000

        Grace Ravlin (American, 1873-1956) Moqui Ceremonial Dance oil on canvas 24 x 30 inches In Moqui Ceremonial Dance, Grace Ravlin focuses more on the individual dancers than on the dance itself, as she often does. We aren't seeing the Katsinas, or a long view of a sinuous dance, or preparations for the dance from a vantage point outside a kiva. Here, we are all but in the dance, feeling the vibrations of their footfalls, hearing the song, the rustle of the costumes and leaves, and observing the symmetry of the dancer's bodies as the move in synchronous harmony across the plaza. To reinforce our proximity, Ravlin shows us a pair of spectators on a roof beside a ladder. They may have a better view, but we're feeling at least some of what the dancers feel. -James D. Balestrieri Property from the Collection of Leonard Stark, Chicago, Illinois
