Harry Edwards painted Handsome Morning—A Dakota in 1921.
As the Brooklyn Museum describes, Edwards painted Handsome Morning “wearing a fringed shift with painted emblems, a bead-and-quill necklace, beaded moccasins, and a ceremonial blanket of fur-lined buffalo hide painted with abstract motifs (a specialty of Dakota women).”
Edwards picks up the bold colors of her garments in the indistinct strokes of the background, tying the subject and her setting together.
In fact, Edwards seems deliberately to have composed the scene to highlight her garments, her delicate moccasin emerging from behind her carefully arrayed blanket.

constructed identity as self-care. performance as self-care. aesthetic as self-care. these things are so valuable, constructing a self you like and cherish is so valuable, choosing to be a person you enjoy is so valuable
