This lavish volume is the most comprehensive treatment to date of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Plains Indian drawings. It is published on the occasion of the first extensive exhibition of this material, organized by The Drawing Center, New York, and The American Federation of Arts. Featured are thirty-six artists from the Lakota, Cheyenne, Kiowa, and Arapaho tribes, such as Black Hawk, Making Medicine, Wohaw, Little Shield, and White Bull. Many of the artists were previously unknown even to experts in the field, and dozens of the drawings are published here for the first time. The eight essays, four artist statements, and catalogue entries on 153 works provide a wealth of information on Plains Indian culture, religion, and individual artists during the reservation era

The Early years of Native American art history : the politics of scholarship and collecting by Janet Catherine Berlo( Book )

18 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation The field of Native American art history (NAAH) and our idea of what comprises Indian art itself were molded largely by the policies of the museums and institutions that established their ethnological collections in the second half of the 19th century. Only now are we beginning to come to terms with what that era reveals about the history of our cultural tastes and about the history of anthropology. This collection of essays by art historians and anthropologists deals with the development of NAAH as a discipline rather than with particular art works or artists. The essays: ask how and why the field came into being, how it was shaped, and why it was defined and modified as it was. Illustrated
Shapeshifting : transformations in Native American art by Karen Kramer( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public perception of Native American art and culture has often been derived from misunderstandings and misinterpretations, and from images promulgated by popular culture. Typically, Native Americans are grouped as a whole and their art and culture considered part of the past rather than widely present. This work challenges these assumptions by focusing on the objects as art rather than cultural or anthropological artifacts and on the multivalent creativity of Native American artists. The approach highlights the inventive contemporaneity that existed in all periods and continues today. More than 75 works in a wide range of media and scale are organized into four thematic groups: changing, expanding the imagination; knowing, expressing worldview; locating, exploring identity and place; and voicing, engaging the individual. The result is a paradigm shift in understanding Native American art
Wild by design : two hundred years of innovation and artistry in American quilts by Janet Catherine Berlo( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wild By Design explores the American tradition of freewheeling, improvisational, often asymmetrical quilts, whose makers experimented boldly with design, color, and pictorial motifs. It examines both the aesthetics and the social history of quilts from the early nineteenth century to the present, including Amish, African American, and modern art quilts." "From the state fair to the clothesline, women have sought ways to exhibit the beauty and optical effects of their quilts. The "quilting frolic" of the nineteenth century was for many women an alternative to the art academy and the salon. Janet Berlo reminds us that quilts were a valued form of artistic expression, meant to be shared and admired among the company of other women." "Over fifty applique and pieced quilts are illustrated, chosen from the collections of the International Quilt Study Center for their outstanding visual qualities. Each is accompanied by a dialogue among quilt experts that illustrates the varied dimensions of quilts as aesthetic objects of the highest order and as reflections of the lives and societies of their makers. This multifaceted analysis of quilts sheds light on the histories of women, textiles, and American art and culture."--Jacket
