This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Walt Wooten has created over forty paintings that celebrated George Catlin's historic trip to Europe in 1945 when he brought along a group of Ojibwa from Iowa while exhibiting his works throughout Europe.  The visitors were a sensation in Paris where they performed Native dances alongside Catlin's portraits.  Wooten's paintings depict the Ojibwa with masterworks from the Louvre.

Biography from Nichols Taos Fine Art Gallery:
A quote from the artist: "The ways in which Native Americans present themselves visually, culturally and historically has had a tremendous impact on me.  Their ways of life, past and present, offer contrasts to capture on canvas.  The challenge is to, in some way, recreate it anew. To tell the story ? what must their culture be or have been like?"

The grandson of a full-blooded Choctaw, Wooten knows the tension of both worlds. Wooten studied art at the Art Institute of Chicago, which also holds an impressive share of classical art.  In the '60s, Wooten was associated with Chicago figurative painters Jim Nutt, Gladys Nilsson and Roger Brown, who presented cartoon-style narratives often with violent or sexual content.  Wooten, though, did not share their style or subject matter, and instead developed his own, more classically figurative style.

Wooten, who now lives in Santa Fe, N.M., also cites the Southwest and Taos Founders as inspirations.
