Indian Girl with Parrot and Hoop

Victor Higgins (American, 1884-1949)

This canvas, with its intricate linear construction, exhibits the artist's dramatic use of brilliant color.

Pueblo people used parrots as a source of feathers to decorate ceremonial objects.

Indiana-born Higgins gained his fame as a Western artist painting in Taos, New Mexico.

(Pettis Gallery, Indianapolis); John P. Frenzel, Sr., Indianapolis, in 1924; by descent to his children; given to the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 1973.
