The Family

POSTCARD: The Family (c 1949)

(c) 1949

I love the colors and symmetry of this postcard. It's a reminder how much things have changed to think the publisher could get away by saying "taken from an original oil painting by a noted Indian artist" without even acknowledging his or her name or tribe.

Beautiful card. Love the simplicity of it.

I need to stop puzzling over the "noted Indian Artist" and focus on the beautiful card.It really is very pleasing in color and design. I just can't figure out why someone would give the original artist half-way credit (i.e. without the name.) The only thing I can guess is that they were trying to establish that it was based on real Indian art and not a white man's fabrication. But, C.E. Eagle could have been and Indian too.
