Chapters 1-4

Early Narrative Genre Painting

  • Early 20th century Native narrative painting consists largely of genre scenes and images of ceremonial life.

  • The impact of non-Native cultures on Native life ways (as a result of removal, reservation and assimilation policies) is a prominent theme in these works.

  • The transition to modern narrative painting began with ledger drawings.

  • In style, the ledger drawings resemble buffalo hide painting: space is flat rather than perspective, forms are drawn in outline and colored in, there is no shading or modeling.

  • Early paintings by the Native American watercolor movement may have been so popular because they depicted traditional Pueblo culture in a manner which avoided political controversy.

  • These works are ethnographic, anecdotal and aesthetic representations which recalled a time prior to U.S. intervention in Native affairs.

  • In the 1920s, concern over federal treatment of Native Americans and conditions of life on Indian reservations began to arise in the United States.

  • In 1926 a comprehensive review of federal policy was undertaken and the 800-page report stated that Indians were living in deplorable conditions of stark poverty, ill-health and malnourishment.

  • The Meriam Report and the 1934 Indian Reorganization Act had direct consequences for Native artists.

  • The philosophy that supported Indian art as economic development was derived from the Meriam Report and became instrumental in the establishment of government laws designed to safeguard against illegitimate Indian art.

  • In 1935 the Indian Arts and Crafts Board was formed.

The art program at Bacone differed in that it was founded and chaired by Native artists, with Native artists as the instructors.

Artists at Bacone depicted figures from legends and mythology and their paintings are somewhat more dramatic than those of the Kiowa and Studio artists.
