The upcoming exhibition of Fritz Scholder’s works includes original paintings, limited edition graphics, sculptures and books. The Larsen Gallery has been hosting annual exhibitions of the work of Scholder for more than twenty years and have placed works in private collections, corporations and museums throughout the United States and Europe. This year’s show opens Feb. 2 and will be on view through Feb. 28 downtown Scottsdale. The exhibition include about 30-40 works on display Larsen Gallery has more than 100 works of Scholder’s available for sale.
The Super Indian Fritz Scholder, 1967–1980 exhibition that was hosted at the Denver Art Museum, Phoenix Art Museum and the Nerman Museum in Kansas in 2015-2016 started the rise of Scholder’s appreciation in the art market showcasing him as not just a regional artist but a prominent figure in the 20th century art canon.
The Larsen Gallery was instrumental in working with collectors Kent and Vicki Logan to amass the paintings that were the focus of that show and continue to work with other collectors to add important Scholder paintings to their collections.
The recent stellar auction results and robust sales in the gallery continue the legacy of Scholder as an important figure in the 20th Century. This exhibition–as well as other future museum and gallery exhibitions–will help contextualize the work of Scholder in regard to his contemporaries including Andy Warhol. Scholder wanted to be remembered as a great colorist and works in this exhibition showcase his love of color and composition.
