The upcoming Art of the American West auction, offered by John Moran Auctioneers, will particularly showcase Native American jewelry, blankets, oil paintings, and more. A Navajo Second-Phase Chief’s blanket is highlighted. These blankets were predominately worn by men of stature – usually chiefs. In 1850, the second phase of the chief’s blankets appeared. At this time, artisans incorporated small red blocks at the ends and centers of the blue stripes.
Veloy Vigil was an artist best known for his abstract paintings of the American West. His acrylic painting titled Prarie Blaossom [Sic] will be presented at auction. Additionally offered is a patinated bronze sculpture from Ed Mell. This statue rests on a green marble base and depicts a cowboy with his horse. Other available items include a Northern Plains hide dress, a large Navajo silver concho belt, and two Southwest pots.
