The Power of His Brush: The Evolution of R.C. Gorman
The Power of His Brush, The Evolution of R.C. Gorman is a biography of Native American painter, Rudolph Carl Gorman. Born into poverty on the Reservation in Chinle, Arizona, R.C. Gorman was not even expected to survive. However, under the nurture of his grandmother and others, this visionary Navajo distinguished himself as an extraordinary artist in the midst of a world normally dominated by White men. As the result of thousands of hours of research, the author has uncovered a story deeper than Gorman’s bigger-than-life persona. Art enthusiasts, history buffs and those interested in Navajo culture will not want to miss the opportunity to acquire their own copy of this beautiful and insightful book.
Award winning author, Nikos Ligidakis, writes with clarity and passion in an ardent voice—not to just recount adventures, but with an expression of feelings to encourage the reader to think, to find hope in the eternal struggle for the meaning of life and the awareness of harmony. The Power of His Brush is Ligidakis’ ninth book.
