Earl Biss "The Ice Fishermen". Here is a great signed limited edition Seri. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep for yourself! This fine Earl Biss Ltd. We can therefore better control our acquisition costs, keep commission costs low (if applicable), and finally, we don't have the overhead that the higher end houses and art galleries experience. Beautiful and highly sought after piece here by Earl Biss.

This is a limited edition Serigraph, number 69 of only 175 ever issued. The piece is entitled, "The Ice Fisherman".

The piece was done in 1992. Very inspiring rendering of Indians gathered around a lake ice fishing. The mountains with the heavy snow on them is captured in the background. The Serigraph is done on a heavy paper or parchment. The wood frame has a black and reddish/brown color to it.

The matting is a darkish blue/black with a gold perimeter around the Serigraph. Appears to be plexiglass, not glass over the piece. The plexiglass is intact over the Serigraph, no cracks or blistering. The paper on the back of the frame is pretty much intact. The hanging wire is in place. The piece does not come with a Certificate of Authenticity.

The Earl Biss Limited Edition Serigraph in frame is 43.25" tall, by 54.25" across, by 1-5/8 wide. The artwork that show within the matting (not counting the white background) is 29.5" tall, by 40-5/8" across. No gallery tag still on the piece as to whom framed/matted. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.

Don't be shy to make an offer, as we are always open to reasonable suggestions! Some information about the artist from the internet.

Earl Biss (1947 - 1998) was a profound contributor to the explosion of Southwestern Art in the last half of the 20th century, and particularly to the rise of contemporary Native American Art. His compelling portraits of Plains Indian horsemen, his phenomenal grasp of the medium of oil painting, and above all the sheer exuberance of his palette and brushwork earned him a place in the history books of modern art. He was, according to one Southwest critic and collector,'The greatest colorist of the 20th century. Born in Reston, Washington and raised by his grandmother on the Crow reservation in southern Montana, Biss was an enrolled member of the Crow Nation and given the Indian name'Spotted Horse' by the tribe.

He found inspiration for his works in tribal legends and histories learned from the elders, and in the sweeping landscapes of the Rocky Mountains and Great Plains. Biss was a central figure in the'miracle generation' of students at the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) in Santa Fe in the 1960s. When Earl and his fellow students - which included Kevin Red Star, T.

Cannon and Doug Hyde - arrived at IAIA, western art was focused on cowboys and landscapes, while Native art was stylized, linear and depictive. And often produced for the tourist market. That perspective was too narrow for Bliss, who studied painting with Fritz Scholder, sculpture with Allan Houser, jewelry and design with Charles Loloma and architecture with Paolo Soleri. Inspired by these teachers, as well as fauvism, impressionism, expressionism and other modernist movements, Bliss pushed himself and his friends to create an entirely new genre that we know today as Contemporary Southwestern Art.

Earl was the catalyst,' Red Star said,'like the agitator in a washing machine. Biss went on to the San Francisco Art Institute on a full scholarship, then moved to Paris where he haunted museums and studied printmaking with S. Returning to Santa Fe, he rented studio space with several of his fellow artists who continually pushed each other to further develop their unique styles. Even as his career skyrocketed, Earl's struggle with his dark side intensified. He painted in bursts of 48 or even 72 hours, refusing to eat and working to collapse.

When not in the studio, he was famous for his consumption of alcohol and other substances, and for going through nine marriages. Weakened both by his lifestyle and a childhood bout with rheumatic fever that damaged his heart, Earl Biss died of a stroke in his studio in 1998.

His works in the Contemporary Southwestern Art style are now collected worldwide. You may also want to get a quote thru UShip directly for your needs, we find them quite reasonable.
