from 24.95

Lucienne Lanson and Patricia Tetzlaff

This lavishly illustrated book chronicles the life and times of Grace Carpenter Hudson, daughter of Northern California pioneers and one of the West’s most accomplished painters of Native Americans. Grace Hudson’s story encompasses the westward movement in 19th-century America, the conflict between Indian peoples and white settlers, and the culture of the Pomo Indians of Northern California. Grace’s more than 650 oil portraits of her Pomo Indian neighbors provide a unique contribution to Western art likely never to be equaled. Her stunning and realistic portrayal of Pomo children became her passion, caught the eye of the public, and made her a national celebrity by the age of 30. For more than 40 years, Grace and her husband, Dr. John Hudson, a physician and ethnographer, dedicated their lives to the study and preservation of the Pomo Indian culture. Extensive personal correspondence as well as previously unpublished photographs provides today’s audience with new insight into the lives of this remarkable couple. 160 pages, 171 illustrations, softcover & hardcover. Published in 2006.
