Native American Portrait.
Solo V, Indio Yaqui. [Mexico: c.1900.] Painted Portrait of a Plains Indian Warrior, ink and oil paint on thin leather, laid on card. 590 x 450 mm. The portrait signed "V.Solo, Mexico," and titled "Indio Yaqui," in ink at lower left, parts of the image using a relievo effect to create dimension. Some light flaking and cracking through age. Mounted on modern card.

A fine but unusual depiction of a plains Indian warrior drawn by a Mexican artist at the turn of the 20th century, titled as Yaqui. The Yaqui lived in Sonora (Northern Mexico), and Arizona, but this native American has a necklace and head-dress made from bear, and would be more connected with tribes from the upper great Plains and around Nebraska, possibly an Otoe or Sauk-Fox warrior.
