R.C. Gorman (Rudolph Carl Gorman) was a Native American artist of the Navajo Nation. He grew up in a traditional Navajo hogan and began drawing at an early age. His grandmother recounted stories of his artist ancestors and Navajo legends, which helped influence his art. Gorman's paintings are primarily of Native American women and have the characteristics of vibrant color and fluid lines.
In 1958 he enrolled in the art program at Mexico City College where he became influenced by the works of Mexican social realists Diego Rivera, David Siqueiros, and Rufino Tamayo. It was the color and form changes from abstraction to abstract realism that intrigued Gorman. While in Mexico, he learned stone lithography, which he used throughout his career to make multiple images of his artworks. Interestingly, he often drew directly on the stones from which the lithography was being printed. Gorman passed away in 2005 in New Mexico.
