Fritz William Scholder V (La Jolla Band of Luiseno Indian, 1937-2005). Lithograph on paper titled "Monster Love, Dream C" depicting an abstract scene, 1982. Pencil signed along the lower right; numbered 119/150 along the lower left. These works were distributed via the book "Fritz Scholder" published by Rizzoli, New York, in 1982.

Scholder spent much of his early life moving throughout the Midwest, living in Minnesota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. At seventeen, he attended the Mid-West Art and Music Camp at the University of Kansas where he studied with Robert B. Green. As a freshman at Wisconsin State University he studied with Arthur Kruk, James Grittner, and Michael Gorski. In 1957 he followed his family to Sacramento, California where he studied with Wayne Thiebaud. He has met and worked with numerous designers and artists including Lloyd Kiva New, Charles Loloma, Max Cole, John Heric, and Bruce McGrew.

His works often show the harsh, realistic side of Native Americans' lives and deaths including the effects of alcohol. His unique experience as a figure who never lived on or around other Native Americans allowed for a fresh perspective on Native American art, though it was sometimes controversial. He fused together Expressionism, Color Field, and Pop art to convey his perspective on his subjects.
