Deconstructing the myth of the American Indian!

In 1967, Fritz Scholder began his unconventional paintings of American Indians. These paintings destroyed the accepted picturesque imagery that had heretofore masked the Indian. Scholder with his bold forms and bright colors demands a personal involvement with the human being…The American Indian. Fritz Scholder was one of the most renowned American Indian artists of the 20th century.
