Original Painting “Jicarilla Apache Clown Society Ceremony” [SOLD]

C3219ZA-paint.jpg

+ Add to my watchlist


Carl A. Vicenti (1930-2006)
  • Category: Paintings
  • Origin: Jicarilla Apache
  • Medium: tempera
  • Size: 12-1/2” x 23-1/2” image; 17-3/4” x 29” framed
  • Item # C3219ZA
  • SOLD

Vicenti has painted with all types of media and portrayed a large variety of subjects, but his prime theme is centered among his Jicarilla Apache culture.  This painting of a Clown Society Ceremony is strikingly dramatic.  Painted on black paper to portray a night ceremony renders the entire painting in shades of grey and black with highlights of a fire and a teepee in color.  Scattered in the background is a variety of colorfully clothed spectators, not easily visible at first.

 

Vicenti, born at Dulce, New Mexico, attended Albuquerque High School, Haskell Institute, Brigham Young University and several other Utah colleges as well as the National University of Mexico in Mexico City.  He studied art in all of these schools so he was very well trained as an artist. It is no surprise, then, that he was an art instructor at one time.  He also garnered many awards during his career.

 

This painting is the first by this artist that we have ever had in the gallery and we are most impressed with his rendering of the subject matter and the manner of his style and quality of his work.

 

Condition:  The painting has just been re-framed using acid-free materials and put back into the original black wood frame.

Provenance: from the collection of Katherine H. Rust
