R.C. Gorman – Picasso Of American Indian Art

|

R.C. Gorman, known as the “Picasso of American Indian Art,” was a renowned Navajo artist celebrated for his vivid and graceful portrayals of Native American women. His artwork often blended traditional themes with modernist elements, creating a distinctive and captivating style. Gorman’s legacy extends beyond his captivating paintings and sculptures; he was also a trailblazer, breaking barriers for Native American artists and leaving an indelible mark on the world of contemporary art.

“I was born near Canyon de Chelly in Chinle, Arizona July 26, 1931. I spent my early years living close to nature and Navajo tradition. My family was rich in artistic talent and creative spirit, but not in material possessions.

“I have been fortunate to live and work in the beautiful Taos Valley, of New Mexico, an environment also rich in artistry and tradition. The spirit of Taos has encouraged and inspired me, and my focus as an artist matured here.

“I’m truly grateful to my friends, drinking buddies, family, patrons, and my loyal staff—all of whom have made my way of life here possible. Thanks for sharing the light.” – R.C. Gorman
