    Sold at Sotheby's New York, Tuesday, November 26, 1991, sale 6265, The Lorimer Collection of Southwestern Weavings, lot 17
    Acquired by the vendor in 1994

    The Lorimer Collection of Southwestern Weavings was the culmination of two generations of enthusiastic collecting. George Horace Lorimer (1867-1937), editor-in-chief of the Saturday Evening Post from 1899 to 1936, traveled extensively throughout the Southwest, sometimes buying textiles and other objects directly from the artists. Lorimer passed his appreciation for Southwest textiles on to his son, George Burford Lorimer (1908-1952), who continued to collect with his wife, Huldah Mingledorff-Lorimer (1912-1998).
