I give thanks everyday that I’ve been able to take my craziness and make it work for me.

Fritz  Scholder

American Landscape 1976

Fritz Scholder (October 6, 1937–February 10, 2005) was one of the most renowned Native American artists of the 20th century. Born in Breckenridge, Minnesota, Scholder was one-quarter Luiseño, a California Mission tribe. Scholder’s most influential works were post-modern in sensibility and somewhat Pop Art in execution as he sought to deconstruct the mythos of the American Indian. A teacher at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe in the late 1960s, Scholder influenced a generation of students that are prominent Native artists today.
