Its rare because he drew very few Navajo Women, or women in general. This sketch from the 1930's to the 50's comes framed and matted and ready to go.
This sketch is of a Native American Indian Navajo Woman of central to Northern NM. It is titled " Navajo Madonna " and as you can see the woman is holding a child within her wrap or blanket. You can see why his images are so desirable as they are very realistic and catch the spirit of the person on the paper.
