Renown for his Indian paintings, Fritz Scholder V combined contemporary culture with tradition to capture the realities faced by Native Americans. In doing this, he transformed the cliche tourist image of the Indian and "forever broke the mold of what Indian painting had been." (LA Times article) Scholder, however, did not limit himself to painting Indians. He traveled throughout the country and world, experimenting with a diverse array of subject material and mediums. He became interested in Western matinee cowboys and fascinated by his travels in Rome. His repertoire expanded to include printmaking, photography and sculpture.
