Interesting painting of the Southwest, showing Native Americans at a nocturnal religious ceremony or festival such as Penitente, probably in New Mexico, many candles flickering in the scene also populated with processional crosses. The blues of the nocturne dominate the composition, and the yellow crosses and many candles receding into the distance complete this most agreeable painting. The work is signed at bottom right with what appears as "Judith Rossio" or "Romo" or similar. To date I cannot correlate the signature with any commonly known artists. In response to my inquiry, the New Mexico Museum of Art responded that they were not aware of an artist with that name or similar . The date of execution is likely about 1950's to 1960's. Measurements of the painting itself are 19 1/2" by 15 1/2". Condition excellent, with just a light abrasion noted at far left. There is a small broken area in the frame at top center as shown in images.
