Plains Indian Drawings, 1865-1935
Pages from a Visual History
This lavish volume is the most comprehensive treatment to date of late 19th and early 20th century Plains Indian drawings. It is published on the occasion of the first extensive exhibition of this material. Featured are 36 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 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. Most drawings are presented in color. Highly recommended!
