Item description

INDIAN ART OF THE AMERICAS by Frederick J. Dockstader, Photography by Carmelo Guadango. 1973 First Edition, Published by the New York Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation. Hardcover, 304 pages. The scope of this exhibition is the Indian of the North, Central and South American continents, from the time of the earliest surviving material culture to the expressions of contemporary Indian artists working in various media. It is an effort to expose the view to the work of the several Indian tribes throughout America, over a period of approximately 4,000 years, and in so doing, to open the door to the accomplishments of the Indian artist working in all of the resources provided by nature. The selection is aesthetic; and while some objects may be more effective in arousing an emotional reaction from the viewer than others. Each of the 500 specimens will present some degree of visual pleasure, and perhaps will introduce heretofore unknown art experiences, or else expand the knowledge the viewer already possesses. Includes a 35-page text, which summarizes the cultural areas of New World peoples, their variety and distribution, and the effects of the arrival of white persons. Volume consists of 500 plates of various pieces of art, with a number of them in color. A visual treat for those interested in Native American Art. Book is OUT OF PRINT and can be difficult to find.
