Fritz Scholder Indian on Horse, Cyanotype Cliche Verre Print
An extremely rare, important, and unique Cyanotype Cliche-verre print from the very small edition of twenty four created by the internationally known artist Fritz Scholder. The oil painting on Mylar for this print was painted at the Rezvani Workshop and Studio on December 14/1978. This is THE ONLY Cyanotype Cliche-verre print by Fritz Scholder from the American Indian series of his art. Published and printed in May 1987 by artist Shahrokh Rezvani at the Rezvani Workshop and Studio in Scottsdale Arizona. Hand signed with pencil on the lower letf. It includes Fritz Scholder’s Buffalo Logo (on the lower left) and the Rezvani Workshop Logo (RW) on the lower right. This is the BAT print from the edition of 24. The BAT print is the most important print in each printed edition, of which quality of all print in the edition are based on. It is also documented with pencil by Shahrokh Rezvani on (lower left) the back side. It is printed on hand made 22 X 30 inch French BFK Rives white paper. The Cliche-verre process was pioneered in France in 1839. However the Cyanotype Cliche-verre process was pioneered by artist Shahrokh Rezvani in 1977 in Scottsdale, Arizona. The intense blue tone created by this process is captivating. Fritz Scholder was a dear and personal friend. At the end of 1978 after attending a solo exhibition of mine and fascinated by a series of Cyanotype Cliche-verre prints that I had pioneered and created he stopped by my private workshop (Rezvani Workshop and Studio, Scottsdale, Arizona) to paint the plates for four Cyanotype Cliche-verre prints. He also created a number of Monotypes at my studio. It also ended its exhibition duration at the Phoenix Art Museum on June 5, 2016 (February 26, 2016 – June 5, 2016). The opening date for this Fritz Scholder exhibition at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art in Overland, kansas was set for June 23, 2016 (June 23, 2016 – September 18, 2016). The exhibition ended its duration on September 18, 2016. Fritz Scholder was born on October 6, 1937 in Breckenridge, Missouri. His paternal grandmother was a member of the LuiseƱo tribe of Mission Indians. Throughout his childhood, the painter’s family moved frequently, living mostly in small towns in the Dakotas and Wisconsin. In the long winter evenings, young Fritz amused himself by drawing, an interest that was soon channeled into serious art study. Although Scholder did not consider himself an Indian, he would be regarded by many as a leader of the New American Indian Art movement. The painter Oscar Howe, a Sioux Indian, introduced him to modern art while he was still in high school. In 1957, the family settled in Sacramento, where Scholder earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at Sacramento State University. At Sacramento, the painter Wayne Thiebaud exposed Scholder to the Pop Art movement. Thiebaud also arranged Scholder’s first solo exhibition. After graduating Scholder taught public school in Sacramento. He then moved to Arizona to earn his Masters Degree in Fine Art at the University of Arizona. From 1964 to 1969 he taught painting and art history at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In time Scholder created an extraordinary fusion of abstract expressionism, surrealism and pop art to express his unique vision of the Southwestern scene and the Native experience. Fritz is perhaps most associated with his Indian series depicting the stereotypical Native American which shocked the public upon its release, stirring an incredible controversy. Over a dozen books have been published on Fritz Scholder and his work, and he has been profiled in two documentaries for public television. Scholder artwork has exhibited throughout the world including such far off destinations as St. Petersburg, Japan, France, Germany, China and as well as throughout the United States. He has been bestowed many high honors for his achievements in the art world and specifically Native American Art. In 1985 he was honored with the Golden Plate Award from the American Academy of Achievement. He received five honorary degrees from Ripon College, University of Arizona, Concordia College, The College of Santa Fe, and the first honorary degree from the University of Wisconsin, Superior. In 2002, Scholder was awarded the Arizona Governors Award. Scholder lived in Scottsdale, AZ for several years before his death in 2005. A memorial was held for Scholder at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, AZ that was attended by hundreds of local residents, friends, fellow artists, and others from the art community.
