Another image added to the website. Rudolph Carl Gorman (1931-2005) was a Native American artist of the Navajo Nation. Referred to as “the Picasso of American Indian artists” by The New York Times, his paintings are primarily of Native American women and characterized by fluid forms and vibrant colors, though he also worked in sculpture, ceramics, and stone lithography. His father, Carl, was one of the original twenty-nine Navajo Code Talkers, who, along with his colleagues, developed the unbreakable code American forces used in the Pacific Theater during World War II.
