R.C. Gorman (1931-2005)

Famed Navajo artist, Rudolph Carl Gorman, passed away on November 3rd of 2005 in New Mexico.

Often referred to as ‘the Native American Picasso,’ by the New York Times, Gorman was known and beloved worldwide for his paintings and sculptures of his favorite subject, outsized women. “I revere women. They are my greatest inspiration,” He told The Associated Press in a 1998 interview at his studio in Taos.

Gorman was born, in 1931 on the Navajo Reservation in Chinle, Arizona. His father, Carl Nelson Gorman, was a sculptor and painter. In the late 1950’s Gorman went to Mexico where he acquired the influence from Diego Rivera, David Siqueiros and Rufino Tamayo among others.

Over his lifetime, Gorman had more than 20 one man shows; his work was part of the exhibition “Masterworks from the Museum of the American Indian” at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, where he was the only living artist represented. Pop-culture icon Andy Warhol painted a portrait of Gorman in 1979.

We at Southwest Country are sad at the passing of such a beloved artist. We celebrate an artist whose works brought Native American art and inspiration to so many.
