Early 20th Century, Small, Naive Oil Painting of Navajo Women Weaving Outdoors



This naive oil painting of two Navajo Women in an outdoor landscape includes a circa 1910 - 1930 style woven rug on a primitive loom, mounted under a large tree. There is a Hogan dwelling nearby and a sheepskin on the ground, along with large balls of yarn. There is also a huge bunch of yarn hanging from the tree (likely a Cottonwood). It is signed with the initials RB and is described (on an old sale tag hanging on the back side of the piece) as titled "Navajo Life". It claims to have been purchased from the heirs of a reservation teacher, who came from Minnesota.
