S father was Carl Gorman, an artist himself and one of the famous and heroic Navajo Code Talkers of WWII fame. This one, titled "Parasol" depicts a two Navajo woman or girls holding a parasol to protect themselves from the blistering New Mexico sun. This is a departure from most of his works which feature a single person.
This appealed to us because of the composition and the story one gets from it, and how it captures the vast spaciousness of the high desert. Multicolor Stone lithographs are produced by the artist with a lot of work and in many steps, based on the principle that oil and water don't mix.
Each color requires a separate run of the paper on the lithographic press, and a retreatment of the lithographic stone. This is a large picture.The image is 34 x 26" and the framed picture about 42x38" Signed and numbered limited edition - #179 of an edition of 200.
