A Portrait my book of the Artist RC Gorman for winding-roads.ca

The great painter RC Gorman was introduced to me in 1977 by a little frame shop Framagraphic Custom Picture Framing on Broadway in Vancouver. Since that introduction to his work I have a couple of books on him and his work.

I picked up RC Gorman A Portrait. The late RC 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.

He was also an avid lover of cuisine, authoring four cookbooks, (with accompanying drawings) called Nudes and Food.

A great artist, a colorful character and a proud Navajo. I hope you take the time to look at his work and you see some of why I like it so much!

Please give me a thumps up if you like this and subscribe to my uTube channel if you care,
