This is by Fritz Scholder, a highly controversial Native American artist. I don’t know what it is about this card but I like it … maybe the idea of evil finding love after all? Or the idea of evil desiring beauty despite itself? Or even beauty falling for evil? Or maybe it’s just the love, pure and simple? I don’t know and have not read the official interpretations … but I like it 🙂 From the National Museum of the American Indian in DC.
I picked this and two other similar cards up at the Hirshorn Museum in Washington, DC. The card has two parts held together by a rivet. You can rotate the top, plastic part for a special optical effect. By Ges. Geschutzt. (By the way, we almost missed the Hirshorn, which would have been a mistake! Even my kids were enjoying the modern art installations — and the gift shop help many treasures you don’t see elsewhere on the Mall!)
This neat art card has an interesting feature; you fold it on the bend and use the attached sticky tape to make it a normal sized postcard. I should have copied the back as well, which shows a b&w line drawing of the artist. I picked this up at the National Museum of Art in Washington, DC.
