3 Paul Coze Drawings - Indigenous Subjects
Item Details
Description
Paul Coze (French/Serbian-American, 1903-1974). Woman with Child, Mojave Woman, and Indigenous Vessel, n.d. 3 Drawings/Mixed Media (pencil, crayon, and pen and ink) on paper. All stamped "ESTATE OF / Paul Coze." A provoking collection of 3 artworks by Paul Coze, each depicting an ethnographic documentation or interpretation of Native American life. Drawn in pen and ink with crayon, the first portrays a Mojave woman wearing a loincloth, body paint, necklaces, and dangling earrings. The upper right corner bares an inscription that designates the woman as "Mohave" and lists a name and museum. Next, the pen and pencil drawing displays a figural vessel possibly at the Denver Art Museum, as the lower right is inscribed "BAS RELIEF / W. Colorado / (mohave) D.A.M." Size of largest image (Indigenous Woman): 8.5" W x 9.8" H (21.6 cm x 24.9 cm) Size of largest page (indigenous artifact): 8.5" W x 11" H (21.6 cm x 27.9 cm) Size of protective film cover (all the same): 9.25" W x 11.2" H (23.5 cm x 28.4 cm)

The last drawing is rendered in pencil and displays a woman holding a child, surrounded by mesmerizing motifs resembling those found on pottery. Coze appears to label the culture of each motif by writing "Pima," "Hoh[okam]," "Hohok[am] colonial per[iod]," and "Maricopa" beside different patterns.

Paul Coze was an anthropologist, artist, and writer who was most notable as a French authority on Native Americans. Between 1928 and 1934, he made four trips across western Canada collecting ethnographic objects for the Musee d'Ethnographie in Paris and the Heye Foundation in New York. He settled in Phoenix, Arizona in 1951 and created nine major pieces of public art in the city, most with Native themes.

Provenance: ex-private Bishop Family Trust collection, the Trust of the late Bill Bishop, a noted antiquarian with shops in Scottsdale, Arizona and Allenspark, Colorado, USA, acquired before 2010
