Woody Crumbo⁣ Starlight⁣ 2005⁣ “Woodrow Wilson “Woody” Crumbo, a member of the Citizen Potawatomi nation, became a well-known artist of Native American subjects. Widely known for his paintings, etchings, silkscreens, stained glass, jewelry, and flutes, Crumbo was also a dancer. During the Depression, he organized a dance troupe that performed traditional dances.⁣ In this night scene, a doe and her fawn are seen in profile with their attention drawn to the sky. Stars appear forming a loose horizontal band across the top of the print with largest star directly above the head of the fawn and in the gaze of the doe. The ground is predominantly in a blanket of light blue and white snow which seems to have melted below the deer revealing the barren ground below. The artist creates visual movement in the scene through the diagonal lines formed by the deer's legs and the curving line of the hills on the horizon. Though it is unclear what exactly is happening in this image, the artist uses several visual elements to draw the viewer's attention to the large star in the sky. Both Queen Elizabeth of England and the Museum of Modern Art, New York City, own complete numbered sets of Crumbo's etchings and silk screens. Woody Crumbo passed away in 1989.”⁣ #modernart #20thcenturyart #paintings #painting #artlovers #famousartists #famousart #artlegends #masterpieceart #artmasterpieces #thearts #everythingart #arteverything #artislife #artislife e🎨 #dailyart #fineart #arthistorian #arthistorynerd #arthistory #historyofart #artlove
