Discovered lands, invented pasts : transforming visions of the American West( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A common theme of western American art--from the depictions of Indians by early explorers to the monumental landscapes of Albert Bierstadt to the vibrant images of Georgia O'Keeffe--is the transformation of the land through European-American exploration and resettlement. In this handsome book, leading authorities look at western American art of the past three centuries, reevaluating it from the perspectives of history, art history, and American studies." "Jules David Prown begins the book by discussing the need for interdisciplinary approaches to broaden the study of western American art. Nancy K. Anderson then calls for a reconsideration of western art as art rather than documentation and for the adoption of new methods to probe its aesthetic, historical, political, and cultural complexities. William Cronon explores what an environmental historian might learn from American landscape art, concluding that each image must be read as a multilayered view intertwining past, present, and future within a larger context of progress and expansionism. Examining representations of American Indians, Brian W. Dippie finds that early works pictured Indians caught up in a process of dramatic change while later artists showed them frozen outside of time; when the frontier ended, western art made nostalgia its defining characteristic. Martha A. Sandweiss argues that the ways in which views of the American west and its peoples reached nineteenth-century audiences--through large edition prints, book illustrations, or theatrical exhibitions--significantly affected both the images and the meanings attached to them. Susan Prendergast Schoelwer challenges popular perceptions of the frontier as a womanless domain, discovering abundant pictures of Native American women in the art of the western fur trade. Howard R. Lamar concludes by discussing the changing perceptions of western artists and inhabitants of their region's landscape in the twentieth century."

Memory and vision : arts, cultures, and lives of Plains Indian peoples by Emma I Hansen( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of the Native peoples of the Great Plains - including the Arapaho, Cheyenne, Lakota, Shoshone, Blackfeet, Kiowa, Pawnee, Arikara, Gros Ventre, Assiniboine, Mandan, Hidatsa, and Crow tribes - is integral to the history and heritage of the American West. These buffalo hunting and horticultural people once dominated the vast open region of the Great Plains, west of the Mississippi River and east of the Rock Mountains, that stretches from present-day Canada to Texas." "The magnificent arts of Plains Indian people also had such spiritual underpinnings which, together with their historical and cultural contexts, can provide greater insight and appreciation of their tribal significances. Illustrated with more than 300 images of objects from the collections of the Plains Indian Museum and Whitney Gallery of Western Art of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, archival photographs of contemporary Native life, Memory and Vision: Arts, Cultures, and Lives of Plains Indian People is a comprehensive examination of the environments and historic forces that forged these cultures, and a celebration of their ongoing presence in our national society."--Jacket
