Vintage Original CREEK INDIAN Solomon McCombs Painting
Solomon McCombs brought with him from Oklahoma a strong tradition of a representational style that developed in Oklahoma during the 1920s and Santa Fe during the 1930s. The style was characterized by strong outlines, flat color application, stylized landscape elements, and decorative patterning used with frequency in narratives detailing traditional Native life.
