About the Artist
(1883 - 1976)
Though Brett had a formal artistic education, she abandoned academic and landscape painting upon her arrival in the Southwest of New Mexico and began to paint Indian subjects. Her works are romantic and symbolic in nature, emphasizing her impressions of the Indians’ mysticism and spirituality. In her works, she sought to “paint the…Indian’s attitude towards life and the world around him. The Indian as he thinks and feels about himself…the spirit of a race, the life behind the life of a people."
