The Art of Brent Learned

This was one of my favorite paintings at Indian Market. I liked it for the use of color which to me helps to convey the excitement of the scene. Mr. Learned is of the Cheyenne/Arapaho tribe.

Native American art often is colorful and bold. This is a great example.

The blue/orange combination really works, a favorite combination of Renoir. He would put strokes of those colors throughout a painting. This artist knows how to use them and I really like the short bow that was used, you need some muscles to pull one of those.

Wonderful choice! Happy to say that Brent Learned is an Oklahoma Native Son. Headquarters of the Cheyenne-Arapaho Nation is at Concho, which is located in my home county of Canadian. I too like this bold use of colors. His website calls this style 'Contemporary Impressionistic'.

Yup. He's one of my favourite Native artists. I wonder what the price tag was on this one.

I'm with you. This is well painted. I might have been interested in buying it if I were out there.
