Against the backdrop of a blazing sky, a Native American woman and a flower bask in each other’s beauty in “Navajo Dawn” by R.C. Gorman (1932 – 2005). Internationally acclaimed for his graceful images of Native American women, the artist grew up in a traditional Navajo hogan, working with rocks, sand, mud and clay. As he matured as an artist, he began creating images that celebrate his tribal heritage. Showered with numerous honors and awards, Gorman broke ground for artists challenging Native American stereotypes.
