About Fritz Scholder ... 1937 - 2005
Controversial and prolific, Fritz Scholder embraced paradox. An enrolled member 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”. Scholder’s constant desire to explore, collect, travel and experience
is undoubtedly the distinguishing feature of both his life and his art. Scholder is best known for his expressionist paintings that are in museum
collections around the world. His style is well known for its distortions, explosive brushwork and vivid colors.
