Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764337084, Hardcover)Finally, here is the first complete biography of the important Navajo painter, Quincy Tahoma (1917-1956). More than 260 beautiful full color images of his paintings complement the dramatic story told of his life and career as one of the best artists of his era. Tahoma's life journey includes early adoption, disappointing love affairs, recognition of his unique talent, and a meteoric rise to fame in the Santa Fe art world followed by the destructive effects of alcoholism. After more than a decade of research into scant and often erroneous historical documentation, the authors completed this compelling true story by collecting oral histories from more than 50 people, most of whom knew Tahoma personally. This book includes his work from his formative years discovering art at the Santa Fe Indian School, through his winning the coveted Philbrook Award as a young adult, to his final creations in the decade that followed. The paintings display the range of the artist's considerable talents, from the tranquil scene of a napping baby antelope to action-packed buffalo hunts. Many of the pieces shown in the book have never before been seen in public.
