Additional Information

Along with Fritz Scholder and Earl Biss, John Nieto is recognized as part of a rising group of Native American modernists whose works are finding renewed interest from a new generation of collectors. Born in Texas with Hispanic and Native American heritage, Nieto drew inspiration primarily from Fauvism, a French art movement from the early 20th century that focused on bold colors and some of the painterly qualities of impressionism. His work was respected in the Southwest, but also internationally after shows in Tokyo and at the Grand Palais in Paris. Prior to his death in 2018, Nieto would have an annual show in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
