by Sascha T. Scott, A Strange Mixture Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Strange Mixture books, Attracted to the rich ceremonial life and unique architecture of the New Mexico pueblos, many early-twentieth-century artists depicted Pueblo peoples, places, and culture in paintings. These artists’ encounters with Pueblo Indians fostered their awareness of Native political struggles and led them to join with Pueblo communities to champion Indian rights. In this book, art historian Sascha T. Scott examines the ways in which non-Pueblo and Pueblo artists advocated for American Indian cultures by confronting some of the cultural, legal, and political issues of the day. Scott closely examines the work of five diverse artists, exploring how their art was shaped by and helped to shape Indian politics. She places the art within the context of the interwar period, 1915–30, a time when federal Indian policy shifted away from forced assimilation and toward preservation of Native cultures. Through careful analysis of paintings by Ernest L. Blumenschein, John Sloan, Marsden Hartley, and Awa Tsireh (Alfonso Roybal), Scott shows how their depictions of thriving Pueblo life and rituals promoted cultural preservation and challenged the pervasive romanticizing theme of the “vanishing Indian.” Georgia O’Keeffe’s images of Pueblo dances, which connect abstraction with lived experience, testify to the legacy of these political and aesthetic transformations. Scott makes use of anthropology, history, and indigenous studies in her art historical narrative. She is one of the first scholars to address varied responses to issues of cultural preservation by aesthetically and culturally diverse artists, including Pueblo painters. Beautifully designed, this book features nearly sixty artworks reproduced in full color.
by Dover, Kiowa And Pueblo Art Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Kiowa And Pueblo Art books, The long and venerable tradition of Native American art began with rock and cave paintings as well as decorated objects for ritual and everyday use. Toward the end of the nineteenth century, Native American artists turned in a new direction by painting and drawing on paper. This volume recaptures a culture's transitional era with a remarkable series of watercolors. Created in the 1920s by artists of the American Southwest, these colorful images offer authentic views of a dynamic society and its captivating traditions. A vital preservation of Native American culture and art, this collection began with a French publisher's series of hand-colored reproductions, issued in limited-edition portfolios. Painstakingly reproduced from the now-rare originals, this new edition presents the first two portfolios together for the first time. Kiowa Indian Art (1929), featuring works by the internationally renowned Kiowa Five, and Pueblo Indian Painting (1932) depict scenes from ritual and social life—the dramatic snake dance, a wedding ceremony, warriors on horseback, and a family portrait, in addition to images of the thunderbird, the plumed serpent, and other mythological creatures. A new introduction by J. J. Brody, a leading authority on Native American art, complements the 81 full-page color plates.

by Dorothy Dunn, American Indian Painting Of The Southwest And Plains Areas Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download American Indian Painting Of The Southwest And Plains Areas books, For the Southwestern Indians, painting was a natural part of all the arts and ceremonies through which they expressed their perception of the universe and their sense of identification with nature. It was wholly lacking in individualism, included no portraits, singled out no artists. But the roving life of the Plains Indians produced a more personal art. Their painted hides were records of an individual's exploits intended, not to supplicate or appease unearthly powers, but to gain prestige within the tribe and proclaim invincibility to an enemy. Plains painting served man-to-man relationships, Southwestern painting those of man to nature, man to God. Such characteristics, and the ways they persist in contemporary Indian painting, are documented by the 157 examples Miss Dunn has chosen to illustrate her story. Thirty-three of these pictures, in full color, are here published for the first time.
