The pictures shown in this exhibition are the work of a young man still in his early twenties, whose career has been a short one but who has already achieved extraordinary style in his Indian portraits. He was born of American parents in Brooklyn, 1898. From Boys' High School he went to the Art Students League in New York City and later studied with F. Winold Reiss. The result of his studies found early expression in the pictured transcripts of the life of the American aborigines. Long and close association with these people, in whose safe-keeping is all that is worth while in American art, is the only way in which to perpetuate their colorful life and traditions.
