LaVerne Nelson Black (American, 1887-1938)
Indian Chiefs

Oil on canvas
Canvas: 20” x 26”

Signed Lower Right: LaVerne Nelson Black
Verso: “Indian Chiefs”

A signed affidavit from March 16, 1937 appears on the verso of the painting, with a testament and a confirmed name, that it was painted by LaVerne Nelson Black, signed by the Artist's wife, Mary E Black.

Bathed in radiant sunlight, six Native American chiefs charge through the desert astride wild-eyed horses. The scene embodies both collective purpose and individual identity, evoking a harmonious yet intricately nuanced narrative.
