Romando Vigil

Jan 23, 1902 - 1978

Romando Vigil, also known as Tse Ye Mu was a Native American self-taught painter and a leader in the San Ildefonso school. He briefly worked for Walt Disney Studios as a painter and illustrator in the 1950s.
He is known for his strong use of simple defining lines to outline his dancing figures and animals. Vigil mostly painted in watercolor, and gouache, and tempera. His paintings depict ceremonial dances and everyday life. Occasionally, he also created abstract and geometric scenes with symbolic iconography, as well as women making pottery. Vigil’s works are in the collections of many institutions, including the National Museum of the American Indian and the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington D.C.
