A Native American Indian sitting with birds flying overhead. The gouache watercolor painting measures inside the mat 9-1/2 inches wide and 12-3/4 inches tall. I see no tears, holes or water damage. The frame measures 24 inches wide and 29 inches tall. Frame still looks nice but does had a few small scratches around the edges. A Kiowa painter from Yukon, Oklahoma, Woody Big Bow created iconographic works that celebrate his culture. He followed the tradition of many of the Indian painters after 1920 who, basing their work on Plains Indians tepee designs, created images with flat colors and geometric shapes. In fact, he was so admiring of other Southern plains artists ‘that he was well-known for copying their style.’ He was born in Carnegie, Oklahoma, the grandson of Chief Big Bow, and studied at the University of Oklahoma in 1939. He designed the red and yellow thunderbird insignia of the Oklahoma 45th Infantry Division in World War II. He was also a set painter for Western movies. Big Bow died in July 1988. (ASKART)
