Jaune Quick-To-See Smith
American, born 1940 [Flathead/Salish]



Jaune Quick-To-See Smith’s “Survival,” a suite of four lithographs, was the debut release of Zanatta Editions. Released in 1996, it is now recognized as one of the most important graphic works created by the artist (who has created one-hundred-some prints).  “Survival” set a high standard for future Zanatta Editions publishing projects.  “Survival” was published in an edition of fifty, and more than one-third of those impressions are now in the collections of museums in the U.S. and Europe, including the Minneapolis Institute of Art, Museum of Mankind/Vienna, Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Walker Art Center, and Whitney Museum of American Art.
