BEATIEN YAZZ (1928-) Native American art large gouache painting of traditional dancers
Tempera or casein on paper on board painting of traditional Native American dancers, 21 1/2" by 34" framed, signed at lower right by the noted Native American artist BEATIEN YAZZ (1928-). This is a typical work in the immediately identifiable style of the artist. Yazz, a Navajo from Arizona, showed artistic ability by age 8 if not before. Once his talents were recognized, he received training in Santa Fe, at the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center, and Chicago Art Institute, as well as with Yasuo Kuniyoshi. A native code talker during the Second World War, Yazz went on to national recognition in the post war years, selling originals and serigraph versions of those originals. His work, focusing on traditional Native American themes including animals, landscape and figures, has been included in collections at major museums in the west and elsewhere, including the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts, Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis, Smithsonian, and Panhandle-Plains Museum in Texas. The artist painted until at least the late 1980's; glaucoma has severely affected his vision and production. This work is clean. As I have noted in other similar Native American works, I believe that a former mat overlying the work has shielded the margin area from light and air exposure, resulting in the two-toned color effect we presently see. **ALLOW FOR REFLECTIONS IN THE GLASS** Shipping wizard figures are guesstimates.
