Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810940507, Hardcover)Among the best known and most honored living Native American artists, Dan Namingha blends realism and abstract modernism with stunning graphic power. Both a biography and a critical study, this book is the first to present Namingha's dazzling paintings and sensuous bronze sculptures inspired by the cultural symbols and landscape of the desert Southwest.
Thomas Hoving, former director of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, examines Namingha's Hopi heritage (his great-grandmother was a legendary Hopi potter) and his childhood on a reservation in Arizona, and explains their influence on his art. The 120 stunning illustrations, including 80 full-color plates-ranging from the powerful Kachina series of paintings to a monumental bronze for the New Mexico state capitol-convey the stark imagery and timelessness of the works of this gifted, original, and important Pueblo artist.
120 illustrations, 80 in full color, 9 x 10 1/2"
THOMAS HOVING was director of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, from 1966 to 1977, staging numerous exhibitions including the blockbuster art show "The Treasures of Tutankhamun." In the past 20 years he has written 14 books, among them Art for Dummies and two national best-sellers.
