(Fine Art Print) Ledger Art on Antique Sheet Music ~ Our Great Plains
Seven Fires Art is pleased to offer for sale this unique example of traditional Ledger Art by noted Lakota Artist Merle Locke!
The Gypsy / Our Great Plains
A truly special and unique piece! Original, signed 12" x 9" ink and acrylic on antique sheet music. Unframed.
Locke offers a different take on traditional ledger art by using vintage sheet music to demonstrate the divide between Native and white culture.
Mr. Locke tells us that Native children in boarding schools often used sheet music or pages torn from hymnals to practice the painting and drawing taught to them by their parents.
In this especially colorful piece, two riders stride across sheet music entitled The Gypsy.
