During his lifetime Joe Quintana was considered one of the most innovative and versatile Native silversmiths. Learning to work with metal as a shipyard welder during World War II, Quintana became a successful artist upon returning to his home at Cochiti Pueblo in New Mexico. His unique designs, craftsmanship, and attention to detail, as exemplified by the superlative collection featured here, captured the imagination of many collectors and dealers, earning him a place among the great twentieth-century silversmiths. Irma Bailey's superlative collection includes jewelry, small boxes, and vases made by Quintana.
