Painting, oil on wood panel, of a Native American chief in full headdress as he looks directly at the viewer. The work, 13 1/2" by 10", is signed at lower right "V. LOWREY" (Vivian Lowrey) and dated 1974. Lowrey, according to information turned up on the internet, worked on the Flathead reservation in western Montana, where she came to be known as "the painter lady". The face of this noble chief is beautifully painted, reminding of some of the works of painter Joseph Sharp, who also worked in Montana among the Crow peoples. The artist used a burned wood technique to create the darker areas around the edges. There is a cypher at left that appears to be a crescent moon shape, in the same light blue paint as the signature.
