Of God and Mortal Men conveys the artistic genius of T.C. Cannon (1946–1978) through his best and most iconic paintings and essays that offer a fresh and inclusive look at Cannon’s work extending beyond the confines of American Indian art. This group of paintingsnine major canvases from the Nancy and Richard Bloch Collectionrepresent the finest of Cannon’s artwork anywhere, from Cannon’s “mature” Santa Fe period and important pieces in the Heard Museum’s collections, including a canvas, lithographs, and woodblock prints, as well as paintings from the New Mexico Museum of Art permanent collections. Added to this are sketch books and music, from Howard and Joy Berlin and Cannon’s sister Joyce Cannon Yi, and Cannon’s poetry.
