More About this Item


Description

This colorful piece of Native American history is from Kiowa Indian Art. Watercolor Paintings in color by the Indians of Oklahoma. The work was published in Nice by C. Szwedzicki in 1929. This first edition was limited to 750 copies, numbered and signed by the publisher, and this is from the 1st set in the series.

This is an outstanding stencil colored plate using the pochoir process. "These prints were produced by the pochoir manual stenciling process. A separate stencil is cut for each color, and the paint is applied by hand. It is an exacting, labor intensive process, requiring trained craftspeople." The plates were completed by five Kiowa artists including Monroe Tsa-To-Ke, Steve Mopope, Jack Hokeah, Spencer Asah, and Bou-Ge-Tah Smokey (a female artist).

Oscar Brousse Jacobson (1882-1966) the director of the School of Art at the University of Oklahoma and founder of the Oklahoma Artists Association wrote the introduction for the work. He supported contemporary Native American art and felt it was of great significance as more than just tourist souvenirs and chose to uplift their voices in this portfolio.
