Gerald Panana, Jemez Pueblo Artist signatureWatercolor artist Gerald Panana was from Jemez Pueblo.  His paintings are quite rare and thus collectible and were done in what is now known and the Indian School Style. 

It appears that Gerald Panana did not pursue a career in the arts, and so very little information is available.  His name is listed in Jeanne Snodgrass’ American Indian Painters: A Biographical Directory in conjunction with a 1958-1959 exhibition at the Museum of New Mexico.  That exhibition—their “Contemporary Indian Artists Annual Exhibition,” most likely—was where this painting was originally sold, alongside works by other Indian School students.
