LAVERNE NELSON BLACK OIL CANVAS(1887-1938 )
Growing up in Wisconsin, Black spent his time drawing his natural surroundings. In 1906, he moved with his family to Illinois and enrolled at the Chicago Art Academy. For two years he studied there, gaining skills in illustration, sculpture and painting. Over the summers between 1908 and 1925 he escaped the East to paint in the West, always returning to his jobs in Chicago and New York. In 1925, ill health moved him, his wife and two children to Taos, New Mexico where he began painting Southwest Indian subjects. He had several successful sales to TiffanyÕs and commissions from various clients for his Indian genre but he never gained substantial recognition for his work completed while living in this popular Southwest area. It was not until the late 1930Õs that Black received the recognition he deserved. MEASURES APPROX 12" X 10".
PRICE REALIZED: $8000 -$12,000
