Silkscreen print by Hopi artist Kyrat Tuvahoema (1914-1942). Entitled "Tsep Kachina Deer Dancer", the print is accompanied by a card reading "Kyrat Tuvahoema was born on the mesa of Old Oraibe in the heart of the Hopi country in 1914. He attended day school until he transferred to Albuquerque Indian School in 1927. He then attended the Santa Fe Indian School Art Department during 1933 to 1935. His paintings were limited in number as he contracted tuberculosis shortly after leaving school, and spent much of his remaining life in various sanitariums in Arizona. He died January 1, 1942." The print was produced in 1969 by Tewa Silk Screen Prints of Santa Fe, New Mexico. It is a very nice representation of Native American and American West art. Excellent condition; matted but never framed. Size: matted to 14" x 11".
