+ Add Artist to My Preferences
Romando Vigil (Tse Ye Mu - Falling Cloud) was born on January 23, 1902 (coincidentally, Feast Day at San Ildefonso Pueblo) and passed away in 1978. He was educated at Santa Fe Indian School, and spent a large part of his adult life working at Walt Disney Studio as a (self-taught) painter.
A leader within the San Ildefonso Watercolor Movement, Vigil used a stylized design to represent his chief interest in painting native ceremonial dance figures. He was a master at creating stylized images with a simple line. His work was neatly executed, often without background or foreground treatment. His coloring was usually very good.
