Sioux Chief

Sioux Chief



From Artsy:  Once a prominent and controversial figure best known for his “Indian” series of paintings, Fritz Scholder—who considered himself equal parts German, French, and Luiseno and was an enrolled member of the Californian tribe—subverted the traditional, romantic image of the American Indian in his work, instead portraying Native Americans through a realist lens. Despite the fame that his “Indian” paintings brought, considered himself a colorist first and foremost, also producing sculpture, prints, and photography. “One color by itself isn't that interesting—it's the second color and a third color, and a dialogue starts and pretty soon you're swept up in it,” he once said.
