Artist Ted DeGrazia primarily used watercolors for sketching, illustration, fabric design and studies for oil paintings but for several years he
focused on them as a serious art form of their own. This selection of watercolors from the early 1950s features DeGrazia's bold brush work,
vivid colors, and beautiful spreading patterns created with wet on wet painting techniques.
"The Seri Indians-
A Primitive People of Tiburon Island in the Gulf of California"
Feb. 15, 2013 - Nov. 30, 2013
The Seri Indians live by the Sea of Cortez in Sonora, Mexico near Tiburon Island. Artist Ted DeGrazia visited Seriland in the late 1960's when the
tribe had only about 350 members. "It is written and it is told that the Seris are vanishing but I wanted to go and see for myself. I visited them everywhere,
at every brushcamp by the sea... to fill my mind with these people and the way they used to live, and be able to put them down on my canvases. I was happy to find
they are not vanishing - they are just small in numbers. They are not nomads, they are primitive by choice. And because only the fit survive, they are handsome -
the women most beautiful. They are the most attractive Indians I have seen anywhere." -Ted DeGrazia
