Walter Ufer (1876-1936) 

written by +Robert Parsons

and Ashley Rolshoven

Ufer said, "I believe that if America gets a national Art,  it will come from the Southwest, and not from the Atlantic Board.

Because we are really different from the Europeans and the frather away from European influence, the better for us.

The strong beauty that the Southwest holds..is what holds us here."

"I paint the Indian as he is.

In the garden digging--in the field working--riding amongst the sage--

meeting his woman in the desert--angling for trout--in meditation"

Ufer often painted outdoors, saying, “Studio work dulls the mind and palette.”

 "The Indian has lost his race pride," he said.

"He wants only to be American. Our civilization has terrific power.

We don't feel it, but that man out there in the mountains feels it, and he cannot cope with such pressure."

"The Indian is not a fantastic figure.  He resents being regarded as a curiosity - as a dingleberry on a tree.

He is intelligent and a good business man. He reads the good magazines and newspapers,

and he is quick to challenge any false statement about himself or his life."

"Gradually and with the Indians here, I believe we can give much to American Art in the future.

The Southwest has gradually gained, though it is still wild, by taking them in its fold."
