Fritz Scholder

Controversial and prolific, Fritz Scholder embraced paradox. An enrolled memeber of the Luiseno tribe, he often said he was not Indian. Scholder’s works were immediately recognized for their insight and powerful commentary on publicly held stereotypes of Native Americans and propelled Scholder into a position of prominence as an artist.

His revolutionary paintings broke away from stereotypical roles and forever changed the concept of “Indian artist”.
