Religious Folk Art of the Southwest
28 April to 13 June 1943
New York Times Review of the exhibition
28 April 1943
Saints and angels carved and painted generations ago by untaught but devout folk artists of the Southwest comprise an Easter Week exhibition opened yesterday at the Museum of Modern Art, 11 West Fifty-third Street. This primitive art flourished in the American Southwest from the early days of the Spanish settlement until late in the nineteenth century when cheap religious prints and mass production plaster figures of saints became available.
