Original gouache & watercolor painting in it's original hand-carved Southwestern frame by the talented Native American listed artist Quincy Tahoma, (1917 - 1956). The painting is in excellent condition, the colors rich & crisp and is signed & dated 1949. The painting is signed in the lower right hand corner with the typical vignette or cartouche that Quincy used. He referred to it as "the next chapter" as it depicts what would come to pass.
I have since opened the painting to photograph the art without the glass. I replaced the original matte with new acid-free matte and placed acid free material behind the painting.Original paintings by Quincy Tahoma do not often appear on the market, period frames such as this one are very uncommon. The frame measures 16 3/16" wide by 21 3/16" tall, the image measures 10" wide by 13 1/2" tall, I did not measure the paper itself.

San Diego Museum of Art. More than 260 beautiful full color images of his paintings complement the dramatic story told of his life and career as one of the best artists of his era. Tahoma's life journey includes early adoption, disappointing love affairs, recognition of his unique talent, and a meteoric rise to fame in the Santa Fe art world followed by the destructive effects of alcoholism.
After more than a decade of research into scant and often erroneous historical documentation, the authors completed this compelling true story by collecting oral histories from more than 50 people, most of whom knew Tahoma personally. This book includes his work from his formative years discovering art at the Santa Fe Indian School, through his winning the coveted Philbrook Award as a young adult, to his final creations in the decade that followed. The paintings display the range of the artist's considerable talents, from the tranquil scene of a napping baby antelope to action-packed buffalo hunts.Many of the pieces shown in the book have never before been seen in public.
