Southwestern Art Taos New Mexico painting of Native Americans in front of the Pueblo

Colorful oil on canvas scene of Native Americans and the Pueblo, 24" by 30" (32" by 38" framed), signed at lower right by recently deceased Los Angeles artist Ida Hindus. The image is almost a Taos "fantasy", of idealized figures in their traditional coverings, the adobe architecture filling the background. I wonder if this might be after a known painting by the likes of a giant like E.L. Blumenschein, the pioneer Taos artist. Or, it might be an example of artistic license, a figment of the artist's imagination (the water between the figures and the pueblo seems to be out of place in Taos, New Mexico). The result is a colorful and interesting painting that borders on folk art and kitsch, the artist's technique falling on the side of primitive and self-taught art. The artist was prolific but evidently sold few of her works, as her estate was recently broken up, and it included a lot of her own artwork---including sculpture. The painting is in excellent condition. I would estimate it was painted in the mid century period, circa 1960's. With the attractive frame (light wear on that), it makes a highly decorative and attention-getting painting of the great Southwest, and a fine addition to any Santa Fe style interior.
