Cover slightly rubbed and edge worn. ; With 64 color prints and over 100 b/w illustrations of both paintings and sculptures, this representative anthology makes visible the fine art of Native Americans in all its richness and diversity. The book opens with a brief history of art in North America during the last century and defines the effects of the invading Anglo culture on developing Native artistic trends. The author contrasts Western concepts of art with those of Indian culture and reveals how the continuing interaction between the two cultures has made it possible for Indian artists to explore and improvise upon their heritage and integrate it with modern-day experiences - with exciting results.
