Title: Bronze Sculpture “Something About a Woman”
Bruce LaFountain was raised on the Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation in northern North Dakota, the official reservation of the Chippewa tribe. His father was a strong influence in his youth who taught his son about his Chippewa heritage, an education that has stayed with the artist throughout his life. His sculptures are based on his heritage. He works in stone and bronze and his sculptures have a lightness and movement in a modernist style.
This sculpture of a Chippewa woman is graceful in the flow of her hair and her long sculptural neckline. Her face is strong with features that evoke passion and strength. This bronze was issued in 1987 in an edition of 30 of which this is number 29.
