Rare 1960's 1970s orange velvet painting Indian warrior 11 x 20 carved frame, kitschy black velvet retro art, vintage velvet Native American

Sorry, this item has sold.

I sell a lot of black velvet paintings, some of which have featured icons such as John Wayne and Snoopy. And yet, they all pale by comparison to this fabulous piece, which is painted not on BLACK velvet but on orange. You can't readily find orange velvet paintings, and to find one so well rendered and preserved is a treat. Plus there is so much to love about it--that serious and almost angry gaze of the Indian warrior. The soft airbrush treatment of the horned skull cap. The errant lines that the artist draws here and there, between the horns, down the sides of the neck, and the curly q's across the neck. This artist--whose name appears to be Mata--was a realist, yet with those abstract lines thrown in here and there, I sense a longing to break out of the mold! Not to mention, painting a black velvet painting on orange velvet!!!

The canvas measures just 11" wide by 20" tall, and with the frame the total painting size is 13-1/2" by 22-1/2". The velvet had some wave and bumps in it, which I've minimized. There may be some scratches yet the warriors face is vibrant and colors intense.

Orange you glad this iconic warrior is painted on orange?
