RC Gorman Proud Lady Stone Lithograph last one made before Navajo artists death
My women work and walk on the land. They need to be strong to survive. They have big hands, strong feet. They are soft and strong like my grandmother who gave me life… “Proud Lady” by the famous Native American Navajo artist, R. This work was the last Stone Lithograph ever created by Mr. The rendering on stone was done by his hand and proofs where subsequently approved by him, however he passed away before the circulated edition was printed and completed. Thus his hand signature is an embossed 22k gold’estate signed’ signature. This is authentic and consistent with all the circulated “Proud Lady” Stone Lithographs. This is a very special and highly sought after work. Artist: Rudolph Carl Gorman. Original Art Medium: Stone Lithograph. Surface: Arches French Cotten Rag. Year Completed: 2005 Estate Signed 22 Kart Gold Edition Size: 12/100. Before RC Gorman, the contemporary Indian art movement as we know it today was nonexistent. Indian art was confined to the traditional style encouraged by the Indian art schools. Gorman had no bonds to this style. Gorman built a bridge, for himself and other artists, between the traditional and the contemporary style of Indian art. It was a bridge between the two cultures in which Gorman lived, and it gave him freedom to express his own vision. In 1964, Gorman visited Taos for the first time. He roamed onto Ledoux Street and into the Manchester Gallery, which was located in the same building that houses the Navajo Gallery today. S work impressed the owner, John Manchester, who offered to mount a show in the gallery the following summer. Back in Taos, Mr. Manchester had moved his gallery to the outskirts of town. Deals were drawn up, promises were made, and late in the year the historic building, parts over 200 years old, with plenty of ghosts and charm, was his. The dramatic Great Room became a perfect studio space; other rooms became the gallery and his home. Another milestone for R. This was the first Indian-owned fine art gallery in the United States. He named the gallery in honor of his own people and moved in. The first group exhibition was in May of 1969. The gallery roster included Patrick Swazo Hinds, Robert Draper, Al Momaday, Helen Hardin, Pablita Velarde, Charles Lovato, Cynthia Bissell, Dorothy Brett, and R. S father, Carl Gorman. Gorman shared the success of his gallery with other artists he admired. Even though the gallery building also served as his private home, every room from his dining room to his notorious nude-filled bathroom displayed art. Supporting a stable of other artists provided the challenge Gorman needed to work hard. As the gallery developed, though, most of the other artists dropped out because of lack of sales, and it became apparent that the gallery should be a showcase for Gorman alone. Social life revolved around the gallery; Gorman enjoyed hosting parties, weddings, and all sorts of happenings during the Hippie Age. Gallery procedures were relaxed and unorthodox in those early days. Ledoux Street hadnt been discovered yet, and gallery hours changed according to R. An imaginative approach to running an art gallery, this flexibility suited Gormans way and enchanted his patrons. 1973 was an important year, with more than the usual schedule of exhibits at the gallery and elsewhere. Gorman offered Hopi artist Dan Namingha, recently discharged from the Marines, his first one-man exhibit. It was so successful that there were two more yearly exhibits before Dan moved on to a gallery in Scottsdale. The Museum of New Mexico in Santa Fe presented R. Gorman and Fritz Scholder in their only exhibition together. It provoked comment from all sides. Scholder: I have tried to paint the torture that it seems to me Indians go through. Anyone who looks at the history of the American Indian realizes it has been a sad history. In December, Gorman presented his Ladies of Taos exhibit, portraits of the famous and fun ladies that had become his friends. Among them: The Honorable Dorothy Brett, Cynthia Bissell, Regina Cook, Ali Ghito, Carolyn Parr, Nula Karavas, Martha Reed, Daria Hopper (one of Denniss ex-wives), Jackie McCarthy, and Little Mother, R. Gormans inclusion in the show Masterworks from the Museum of the American Indian at the Metropolitan Museum in New York marked a 1973 milepost. He was the only living artist to be included. So, Gorman was the first Native American to list the Metropolitan Museum in his credits. In the following years R. Traveled cross country to as many as a dozen one-man shows a year. Hollywood discovered Taos in general, and Gorman in particular. Jeanne Cooper, of The Young and the Restless, started the trek up the gallery path, followed by Gregory Peck, Martha and Hal Wallis, Lee Marvin, Senator Barry Goldwater, Ruth Warrick, George Grizzard, Linda Lavin, and, eventually, Elizabeth Taylor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Shriver, Arlo Guthrie, and Danny DeVito. And on and on. PBS filmed the first of many TV documentaries about Gorman in 1976. The six half-hour programs, collectively titled American Indian Artists, celebrated the Bicentennial by presenting a memorable cast: Allan Houser, Helen Hardin, Joseph Lonewolf and Grace Medicine Flower, Charles Loloma, Fritz Scholder, and Gorman. Twenty years later, friends write that they saw the series rerun in all parts of the country. During the 80s the large format books on Gormans art started rolling off the presses of national publishers. Each book played a part in educating a wide audience in Gormans background, his family, and his flamboyant personality. The universality of his art grew stronger. His new home brought out Gormans hospitality; yet another First Lady came for a private visit. This time it was Jacqueline Kennedy. She was gracious and generous of spirit, and those who met her that quiet day will never forget her. Her poise and gentle demeanor impressed Gorman as well. His 1998 schedule included exhibits at the Adagio Gallery in Palm Springs, the East-West Center in Honolulu, and the Four Winds Gallery in Australia. Then a European tour with his sister, Donna, and work on a lithograph at the Lithografia R. Bulla press in Rome. In August the Navajo Gallery celebrates the Thirtieth Year Anniversary Celebration. After that, hes off again. RC died in 2005! I deal with the common woman who smells of the fields and maize. She lives and breathes. My women are remote, withdrawn in their silence. They dont look out, but glance inward in the Indian way. You know their faces, but not a thing about their thoughts. They do not reveal whether they are looking at us or not. I like to think that my women represent a universal woman. They dont have to be from the reservation. They could be from Scottsdale or Africa. Theyre composites of many women Ive known.
