Nota a catalogo

For a discussion of classic Navajo textiles see Blomberg, 1988, pp. 1-4: "During the Classic Period the Navajo wove utilitarian items of clothing such as blankets, shirts, dresses, and belts for their own use and for trade to other Indian groups. Early Navajo blankets were used as outer garments for protection from the elements. Tightly woven of wool, they provided warmth and shed water...In general, men's and women's shoulder blankets and dresses dominate Classic Period textiles...Technically, the Navajo weaver achieved a level of excellence seldom reached since, producing a functional blanket as well as a premier work of art."  For a comparable example see Sotheby's, New York, May 2012, lot 138.
