Darkness Disappears
In 1981, Frederick was adopted by Marguerite and Baldwin Parker, grandson of the famous Comanche war chief. She is the family artist, providing artwork and images for various functions and helps with the annual reunion and pow wow held each year in Cache, OK. This pastel portrait of Quanah shows him in front of the Wichita mountains of Oklahoma where he chose to live after being forced into the "white man's road." Quanah was responsible for bringing peyote to the tribes and incorporating the Native American Church in the United States, and thus Frederick has tried to symbolize his "vision" for Indian people in a spiritual and literal way. The pastel portrait, Darkness Disappears, comes from the inscription on Quanah's tombstone which reads, "Quanah Parker: Last Chief of the Comanches; Resting here till the day breaks, shadows fall and darkness disappears."

Print Price: $45 each, 18" x 24", signed and numbered by the artist.
