From the Foreword
"Rarely does a museum have the opportunity to present an exhibit which signals a new approach toward the art of a culture. It is with pride, then, that the Oklahoma Museum of Art introduces 'One Hundred Years of Native American Painting,' a major retrospective exhibition of Indian painting...
"The concept which determined the unique nature of the exhibit was the selection of the paintings from an aesthetic rather than an ethnological category and simply presenting it as Art, a remarkably brilliant aspect of American culture is revealed. While the Indian quality is ever present in the subject matter and the philosophic outlook which permeates the art, the splendor of design, the color, the technique and the range of emotional intensity clearly transcend the ethnological and place the art among the world's finest."
