Kyrate Tuvahoema (1914-1942)

+ Add Artist to My Preferences

Kyrate Tuvahoema (1914-1942) signatureA student of Indian schools at Hopi Pueblo as well as in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, Kyrate Tuvahoema (1914-1942), was known for his depictions of Katsinas that were “tall and lean, but with good detail and color in costume, mask, and paraphernalia.” (Southwest Indian Painting: A Changing Art, by Clara Lee Tanner). Modeling, or the use of shading to give depth, was not Tuvahoema’s strong suit, but his drafting was thought to be very precise.
