David W. Penney

North American Indian Art

Foreword by George Horse Capture

€ 23.95

The perfect introduction to Native American art and culture

This timely new book surveys the artistic traditions of indigenous North America, from those of ancient cultures such as the Adena, Hopewell, Mississippian and Anasazi to the work of modern artists including Earnest Spybuck, Fred Kabotie, T. C. Cannon and Gerald McMaster.

With 180 illustrations of superlative works of art, the book focuses on the social and cultural role of artists within Native societies and the magnificent objects they created, whether traditional, for tourists, or contemporary. David W. Penney takes us all over North America, from the markets of Santa Fe and the prairies of the Plains Indians to the painted rocks of California, the shaman dances of the Northwest Coast and the whale hunts of the Arctic.

Drawing on oral testimonies as well as the latest archaeological research, Penney also explores the history of Native art, tracing the changes and developments brought about by trade with white settlers and contact between different indigenous groups, and the startlingly fresh innovations that have resulted from specific historical circumstances.
