Indian Art in America: The Arts and Crafts of the North American Indian
By: Frederick J. Dockstader
69 Color plates and 180 black and white illustrations
The most comprehensive presentation of the visual arts of the Indian ever to appear in book form, based upon the resources of the Heye Foundation's Museum of the American Indian and the collection of Americana compiled by the Carnegie Corporation, with significant additions from museums throughout the country.
The magnificent art and decorative craftsmanship of the Indian tribes of North America appear in all of their colorful variety and complexity in this superb volume. Examples are included of the work of every major region in the areas now comprising the United States and Canada, of most of the numerically important or artistically pre-eminent tribes, and of all of the major techniques employed by Indian artists. Much of the material has never before been published and represents a deliberate effort to present less will-known masterpieces previously overlooked.
