Richard Hunt Loon Print Northwest Indian Artist Signed
This print, entitled Loon by Richard Hunt, is one of a group of small framed prints we purchased from an estate sale. Each is the work of a Northwestern Native American artist. All are displayed in the same way with information about each artist. They appear to be hand signed and titled in pencil. Information on one of them leads me to believe they may all have been limited edition cards. The frames are metal 14" x 11", with cardboard backing and loops for hanging. The print measures 5.5" x 8.5". It is not professionally framed. Print is attached to a heavy green background paper that has been folded in the center. It is in very good condition.
Richard Hunt is a Kwa-Guth (Kwakiutl) artist, the chief carver of the British Columbia Provincial Museum in Victoria. Richard was born in Alert Bay in 1951. His mother was the adopted daughter of the great chief, Mungo Martin. His internationally known father, Henry, and brother Tony, also artists, where his early teachers. This is a Kwa-Guth design of the Loon as danced at a potlatch.
