About the Artist

(1922-1979, Jicarilla Apache) Frank Vigil’s work is illustrated in Dorothy Tanner’s Southwest Indian Painting. In it we are told Vigil served in the US Army during World War II. He exhibited widely at the Gallup Ceremonials, the Scottsdale National and at the Philbrook in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Often he chose to paint horses in both static and active scenes. Apache crown dancers were another of the artist’s favorite subjects for this largely self-taught artist. Patrick Lester’s The Biographical Directory of Native American Painters references Frank Vigil as well.
