Rudolph Carl Gorman (American 1931-2005) Gorman’s most successful and best received subjects in his art were Navajo women. “Lea” captures the essence of beauty and strength in a simplistic seated pose. The glaze is saturated with both pale and strong colors connecting to the core of his subject. A beautiful work by this highly renowned Southwestern artist.
