In the early 1970's, Vera Neumann traveled across Mexico and South America, gathering inspiration for her next collection which she called, "indian Spirit". She took inspiration from the local crafts, fabricsand art forms of the indigenous people she met along the way.
This amazing painting, featured in Susan Seid's fabulous book, "Vera: The Art and Life of an Icon," is a recreation of the South American symbol of "man".
You might have seen this painting before. It appears in a famous poster from 1970 for a fun-raising event in Southhampton, NY, for "Americans for Indian Opportunity," that happened on July 11, 1970.
A mystical pattern is reinterpreted in Mod geometric terms. Rich, metallic gold watercolors pop out on pure white silk. Hand-rolled hems in white silk hold the edge and reveal the quality of a Vera scarf.
Meaures 27" square. No tag. Silk-screened in the U.S.A. with Vera's pure silk - so strong and smooth! The silk is strong and the drape is loose and watery.
Lovely vintage condition... a few 2" wide surface spots (much like frosting) located at the two sides should launder out in your care.
