Mimbres painted pottery by J. J Brody( Book )

16 editions published between 1977 and 2005 in English and held by 1,115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A distinguished scholar of Southwestern Native arts for over thirty years, J.J. Brody here returns to his early work on the Mimbres ceramic tradition, which established him as the leading authority on the arts of this ancient people. The Mimbres cultural florescence between A.D. 1000 and A.D. 1140 remains one of the most visually astonishing and anthropologically intriguing questions in Southwest prehistory. In this revised edition, Dr. Brody incorporates the extensive fieldwork done on Mimbres sites since the original publication in 1977, updating his discussion of village life, the larger world in which the Mimbres people lived, and how the art that they practiced illuminates these wider issues. He addresses human and animal iconography, the importance of perspective and motion in perceiving Mimbres artistry, and the technology used to produce the ceramics. Placing the study of ancient art and artifacts in the present, he notes the impact of the antiquities market on archaeological and artistic research

Pueblo Indian painting : tradition and modernism in New Mexico, 1900-1930 by J. J Brody( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the extensive Pueblo painting collections of the School of American Research in Santa Fe, the book traces the lives and examines the achievements of seven key artist: Fred Kabotie and Otis Polelonema of Hopi, Velino Shije Herrera (Ma-Pe-Wi) of Zia, and Awa Tsireh (Alfonso Roybal), Crescencio Martinez (Ta'e), Oqwa Pi (Abel Sanchez), and Tonita Pena (Quah Ah) of San Ildefonso. Brody also explores the role played by the individuals who supported and promoted the Pueblo artists' work, including writers Mary Austin and Alice Corbin Henderson, archaeologist Edgar Lee Hewett, artist and scholar Kenneth M. Chapman, painter John Sloan, and art patrons Mabel Dodge Luhan and Amelia Elizabeth White. Pueblo Indian Painting places this important but underappreciated fine art squarely within the contexts of Pueblo culture and Euro-American modernism, bringing long-overdue recognition to the tradition and its preeminent practitioners as a vital part of American art history

To touch the past : the painted pottery of the Mimbres people : essays by J. J Brody( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Native American people we refer to as Mimbres flourished in southern New Mexico some one thousand years ago. They are remembered today for the images they painted inside shallow bowls and eventually buried with their dead. Their arrestingly beautiful paintings, showing a sophisticated sense of design and remarkable level of confidence, depict abstract patterns; animals, birds, insects, and people; common activities such as hunting and fishing; and magical events. These bowls have been avidly collected in the twentieth century and have inspired contemporary artists, both Native American and others. The Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota holds one of the two largest collections of Mimbres pottery in the world. The finest of its eight hundred objects - almost all of them from the Galaz Site - are published in To Touch the Past: The Painted Pottery of the Mimbres People in conjunction with a major exhibition (few of them have ever been exhibited or published before)
