|Provenance: Ex Daly collection. David and Harriet Daly escaped the frigid winters of Minnesota in 1961 and moved to the Valley of the Sun, Phoenix. David was the founding neurologist of the Barrow Neurological Institute. Harriet, an amateur artist, began taking painting classes at the Heard Museum, and quickly became friends with James Parker, the curator of the Heard and Lovena Ohl, the “Doyenne of American Indian art”. Harriet and Dave embraced the colors, cultures, and art forms of the American southwest. They became collectors of the art forms they were introduced to by their friends at the Heard Museum. Their collection came to encompass native weavings, kachinas, pottery, jewelry, sculptures, and paintings. They regularly attended the ceremonial dances in northern Arizona, the summer markets in Santa Fe and art shows at the Heard. They learned from the artists whose work they collected and turned artists into lifelong friends. This experienced greatly enriched their lives. They purchased this plate in San Ildefonso pueblo on October 3, 1964.|
