A rare surviving original illustration by James Arthur for use as calendar art created in the late 1920's for the Louis F. Dow calendar company under the title Land of Sky Blue Waters. The allure of the Indian Maiden proved inspiration for many American Illustrators. They were curiously portrayed as "white" and anglicized in their features. Today, Indian Maidens are even more collectible than during their initial popularity of the 1920's. This work has photographic elements in her face and figure (which was often the case with artists of this genre), with much detailed oil painting. A published calendar top with artwork is included in sale.
