John NIeto - Portraits


John Nieto’s portrait paintings were frequently based on historic records of Native Americans and their interactions with the newcomers to their ancestral lands.  Many living Native Americans consented to have him paint them, including fancy dancers at Pow-Wows, who trusted him to honor their traditions, regalia, and spirits in his portraiture.  He also enjoyed portraying many of the great artists he admired, living and deceased, always in the contemporary styles and vivid colors that defined his oeuvre.
