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.
