Lotan 1950Josie Dudman Robertson
When my parents and I moved to Scottsdale AZ in the summer of 1949 or 50 we lived in an apartment 1 block from Scottsdale Rd. and Lotan, Lotan and his wife lived next door to us. I was 12 yrs.old and watched him paint on people's clothing. I mostly remember a skirt with nothing but human eyes all over it. He collected desert animals to incorporate into his landscapes with parts of humans camouflaged into the picture. I have not nor will I never forget his paintings of that time. My family was also from Illinois, but I don't remember any conversations about that.
