Signed and numbered R. C. Gorman large vase or vessel. It is shades of dusty rose and pink, hand painted with a Native American woman and several green nuts or vegetables. Signed R. C. Gorman and numbered 76/150 near the base. On the bottom it reads 1986 Gorman Edition Greg Grycner ltd. ed. and "Calabasas". Very good vintage condition. It does have some scuffs, marks and scratches which may be cleanable, but we have not attempted to clean it.
Rudolph Carl Gorman (July 26, 1931 – November 3, 2005) was a Native American artist of the Navajo Nation. Referred to as "the Picasso of American Indian artists" by The New York Times, his paintings are primarily of Native American women and characterized by fluid forms and vibrant colors, though he also worked in sculpture, ceramics, and stone lithography.
