About

Exhibiting beautiful draftsmanship, this academic drawing was made by Joe Waano Gano, one of America's first Indian artists to train in the Western art tradition. Born a Cherokee Indian (his name means "Bow-Arrow"), Waano Gano studied with Christian von Schneideau in the 1920s before exhibiting widely in the 1930s and 1940s. The artist won a series of medals and prizes, painted murals in the Los Angeles General Hospital, and promoted the native art of the American Indian. This drawing is signed and has the artist's estate stamp.
