The art of Dan Namingha by Thomas Hoving( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing upon the landscape and culture of his native American Southwest, Dan Namingha blends abstraction and reality. Boldly colored and powerfully constructed, his works evoke the stark red sandstone desert of New Mexico and Arizona, the buttes and mesas of the Hopi land, and the emblems and symbols of Hopi ceremonies, to which he is strongly connected." "His great-great-grandmother was the legendary Hopi potter Nampeyo, and numerous family members create traditional and innovative art of high distinction - pottery, kachina dolls, paintings, and graphic works. Raised in the combined tradition of two Pueblo peoples, the Hopi and the Tewa, Namingha marries the colorful, geometric imagery of his indigenous roots with the tradition of twentieth-century abstract modernism. His artistic schooling includes formal training at Santa Fe's Institute of American Indian Arts and brief, but important, studies at the University of Kansas and the American Academy of Art in Chicago."--Jacket

"You saw the cover of this book and paused. You recognized the stern countenance of the old farmer and the dour mien of his companion. You recognized the pitchfork and the gabled roof. You may not have known the name of the painting or of the artist who painted it; however, you already knew that you were looking at an American masterpiece. But as you looked at this masterpiece, what did you see?" "From its controversial unveiling at a juried exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago seventy-five years ago to its eventual acceptance and recognition as a true work of art, American Gothic has seeped into the American psyche and become a beloved piece of Americana. Art connoisseur and bestselling author Thomas Hoving offers both his professional and his personal opinion about the iconic painting and brings its creator, Grant Wood, to life. Hoving trains your eye to look for the nuances, and directs your attention to little details that you might have missed, as well as providing insights into Wood's sources of inspiration and creative process.
