Catalogue Description: "Fall Corn Dance" is an opaque watercolor over graphite drawing on a textured wove paper. The artist's signature, "Mootzka", is located at the bottom right corner of the image in black watercolor. The media is generally in good condition but there is some cracking in the dark blue skirts, the yellow stripes of the flag, the green in the feather headdresses, and in most of the red areas. There is also cracking in the brown drum and belt of the figure in pink. An previous acidic mat caused an orange-brown mat burn around the image.
