Susan is Cowan's consulting ethnologist. Author of Farny Paints the Far West and co-author of Rookwood and the American Indian, she holds a PhD in American Indian History and Anthropology.
As a leader in the field of American Indian Art, Cowan's has sold over $14 million of Native objects. Auctions are held twice a year focusing on North American cultural and ethnographic material spanning from the Arctic and Northwest Coast, through the Great Plains and Southwest, and over to the Great Lakes. Photography of the American Indian and works of art portraying a romantic West by artists such as Henry Farny and Charles Russell, create a well-rounded auction that attracts aggressive bidding by American Indian and Western art collectors.
