Johnson Antonio is recognized as the founding father of Navajo folk art and his work is especially prized for his affectionate depictions of his people and culture. This large and powerful rendition of a Navajo woman and her sheep is signed and dated (1989), and serves as a reminder of Johnson’s mastery of pocket-knife, cottonwood, and paint.


About the artist:

Johnson Antonio is a latecomer to the art world.  Now in his late seventies, he was not compelled to carve until in his fifties after a long career laying steel track for the Union Pacific Railroad.  Starting in 1951, they would pick him up by bus at the Tsaya Trading Post in the spring and not bring him home until the fall.  In fact, while working for the railroad, Johnson met and married his wife, Lorena Henry, via a correspondence relationship.
