Biography from a third party submitted on 12/04/2008:
Emerson Quannie was born in the Hopi village of Kykotsmovi in 1916.  He attended the Albuquerque Indian School in 1932 and, while there, painted a mural at the Albuquerque Kimo Theater.  According to his wife, Quannie did very little painting after leaving the Indian school.  She knew of only one painting by him after their marriage in 1939. (Seymour 1988).

There are paintings by Quannie in the Denman Collection at the U. S. Department of the Interior, Washington, DC; the Marion Koogler McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, TX; and the Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff, AZ.  At least one piece was exhibited at the Heard Museum in 1986 in an exhibit entitled "When The Rainbow Touches Down."

It appears that there have been very few pieces by Quannie on the open market for collectors to purchase.  His premature death at age 32 could partially explain this lack of material as well as the fact that he worked full time at a trading post as a bookkeeper.
