'Gladia' is an original color lithograph by the renown printmaker R.C. Gorman. From Arizona, the artist's later works focus almost entirely on the female figure and take Native American and Southwestern imagery as a source of inspiration. Here, a single woman sits in a colorful yet undefined space. The oval shape of her broad seated form is repeated in the delicately drawn shape of the flower basket at her feet. The basket contains a bundle of multicolor gladiolus flowers for which, of course, the print is named.
