San Ildefonso Tonita Pena "Quah Ah"

Tonita Pena 1895-1949

San Ildefonso Tonita Pena "Quah Ah"

Tonita Peña, whose Indian name was Quah Ah, was born in 1893 in the pueblo of San Ildefonso. She became the first Pueblo Indian easel painter, and doing genre painting of local village life, she broke away from the stereotype of only men doing narrative painting, at that time. In excellent condition. Signed on bottom with wire on back.
