In 1972, F. H. Tutt, an art dealer from San Clemente, California, organized the printing of limited-numbered sets of five of Navajo artist Quincy Tahoma’s paintings that he had commissioned in 1952.  He packaged them in a hardback folio and included a page explaining the portfolio.

In 1973, Tuff described the edition as follows:

            …a Deluxe Portfolio of reproductions of the five paintings and a cover story in a beautiful silver and turquoise hardcover jacket…

The five paintings were the personal property of the Tuffs and had been displayed only in their home since they purchased them in 1952.  The five are:

The Last Jump, a warrior on a horse frightened by a skunk

A Sign of Spring, a stag standing on a rock protecting fawns sleeping underneath

Fighting Over Prey, a cougar and bear with a downed deer

Two Quincy Tahoma stallions with manes flying

King of the Stallions

The Runaway Stallion

The portfolio was issued in a limited edition of 1000 copies.  This set is #320 of 1000.

 

Condition: there is evidence that moisture got to the set in the past, although the prints appear to be undamaged.  The Portfolio of a Set of Prints of Navajo Artist Quincy Tahoma has a tear in the upper edge of the spine.
