The Gatherers (State II), 2001

29" x 41"

Framed (41" x 53")

AP10 (Artist's Proof)


The size of the Artist's Edition of "The Gatherers St II" is 100. State I was also produced in an edition of 100.


Over the near 6 decades of R.C.'s career, his work and style continuously evolved. It is a fascinating process, to go beyond the surface and to discover an artist's journey. R.C.'s art continues to be cherished throughout the world. His work still adorns the walls of many homes, galleries and public spaces in Taos, across the US, and around the world.


This Original Lithograph is in excellent condition and is beautifully framed, ready to hang.


Shipping can be arrange to just about anywhere. The Gallery will cover the costs of packing and insuring the artwork. The shipping options and costs will be up to the purchaser.


Compare to The Navajo Gallery's last public listing (Jan 2020): $5,200.00 (unframed of the Artist's Edition).


Ca 2009 Western Graphics produced a suggested retail price list of R.C.'s work that listed The Gatherers St II at $3,000 and State I at $2,550. State II has proven to me to be the more sought and harder to find of the two, and while the Navajo Gallery currently values both states of the Artist's Edition at $5,200, I have chosen to keep this AP at near their retail listing.


  • R.C. Gorman | July 27, 1931 - November 3, 2005

    Called "The Picasso of American Indian Art" by The New York Times, my uncle, R.C. Gorman, was a prolific and highly acclaimed artist.

    Born on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Chinle, Arizona to Carl Gorman and Adele Brown, R.C. had humble beginnings. He was the first to recieve a scholarship from the Navajo Nation to study internationally. He attended art school in Mexico City where he learned the art of lithography from master printer, Jose Sanchez.

    R.C. Moved to Taos in 1967. He had been showing his work at the Manchester Gallery and in 1968, he purchased the Manchester Gallery and turned it into the Navajo Gallery - the very first Native American owned art gallery.

    Over the next 4 decades R.C.'s fame and acclaim grew. In 1973 he was the only living artist to be included in the “Masterworks of the American Indian" show held at Metropolitan Museum in New York City. One of his works was selected to be the cover of the exhibit's catalog. Perhaps best known for his colorful and vibrant depictions of Native Life, particularly of Native Women, R.C.'s art pays homage to his roots. His carreer span many mediums and styles.

    Today, Taos celebrates R.C. legacy with an annual R.C. Gorman Days in July.
