Fritz Scholder: “A New Indian Art”

September 22, 2014

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

Celebrated for his unconventional, postmodernist paintings of American Indians, Fritz Scholder (1937-2005) is a central figure in the transformation and popularization of Native American art. LAMA is pleased to present nine artworks by Scholder in the October 12, 2014 Modern Art & Design Auction. Scholder’s work is an idiosyncratic mix of social realism, convention, and myth: each painted with the artist’s inimitable blend of Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art, learned from heroes and teachers such as Wayne Thiebaud, Francis Bacon, and renowned American Indian artist Oscar Howe.
