Description

Alfonso Roybal better known as Awa Tsireh (Cat Tail Bird in the Tewa language) was born in the small pueblo of San Ildefonso New Mexico in 1898. He became arguably the finest Native American painter of the first half of the twentieth century. To date the authors have documented over four hundred of Awa Tsirehs paintings in numerous private collections and more than thirty museums. Awa Tsirehs metalwork in silver copper and aluminum is a completely different story. This book brings together more of his metalwork than has previously been shown in one setting. Awa Tsireh created jewelry platters and other serviceware at the Garden of the Gods Trading Post in Manitou Springs Colorado where he worked with other Native metalsmiths many to date unidentified in the summer months during the 1930s and 1940s. Rarely has Awa Tsirehs metalwork bought by Trading Post visitors made its way into museum collections. Awa Tsirehs recognizable and charming imagery and the quality of his hand and imagination however illuminate all of his pieces. His metalwork is further evidence that the Pueblo artists talent transcended medium material and milieu. This book will coincide with an exhibition at the Heard Museum November 3 2017 through 15 July 2018. Published by the Heard Museum. Language: English
