The Silversmith's Daughter, Navajo, 1910, New Mexico. Taken by J. R. Willis (1876 - 1960). This beautiful little girl is Navajo, and this photo was taken near Gallup, N. Mexico. J. R. Willis was best known for his photographs of First People, but he also did many other things. He worked as a reporter for the Atlanta Constitution before beginning his art studies in 1902. He also worked in motion pictures and the newspaper business in California, afterward moving to New Mexico where he established a photography studio in Gallup. Willis spent his summers painting on the Reservations of Arizona and New Mexico. He moved to Albuquerque, NM, in the early 1930s, spending his winters in New Orleans or Atlanta.
Beautiful, clear print of a lovely child, which is perfect for our homage to the Native Americans who lived on our property.
Beautiful image, shipped quickly. Gave as a gift, recipient was pleased.
