This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A Navajo Indian artist born in the late 19th century, Apie Begay was encouraged by Dr. Kenneth Chapman, who arrived in the Southwest in 1899 to help with the promotion of native arts.  According to Jeanne Snodgrass in her book American Indian Painters:  In 1902, Chapman "found the artist sitting on the floor of his hogan attempting to reproduce sand painting designs in the only two colors he had: red and black.  When Dr. Chapman gave Begay a full box of crayons, he immediately set out to execute detailed replicas of sand paintings.  Three of these first crayon drawings are now in the Indian Arts Fund Collection at the Museum of New Mexico, Santa Fe, NM." (17)
