His grandfather, Tomas, and father, Paul, were noted painters from Tesuque Pueblo. The talent was passed on, and Virgil paints the same sort of subjects – Pueblo dancers – but in bright colors and astonishing detail.
This micro-mini painting is vividly hued, and finely detailed. It is barely over an inch in dimensions, but the amazing detail of the costume, mask, and paraphernalia are all visible with a magnifying glass. Handsomely matted and framed in acid-free materials, this tiny gem is bright, and a sure-fire conversation piece, too.
We have found his work posted on eBay, for much more than this ready-to-hang price. Lucky you – this is our vintage price for this vibrant, vintage painting.
