Finely executed PAIR of drawings in gouache, each 14" by 10" (21 1/2" by 18" framed), each featuring a 19th century kachina doll of the Southwest against a black neutral background. The artist signed each work "M. Smith" and on backing board of each is written "Antique Kachina/A Supernatural Being--/A Spirit Helper". I do not know the identity of the artist; the works were acquired in the Phoenix area. Obviously he/she has carefully studied and has extensive knowledge of the Hopi kachina dolls, their history, form, and spiritual significance to the native American population. The detail and technical mastery is most impressive. A fine addition to your collection of Southwestern American art.
