INTRODUCING a totally new concept, this handsome book is a long-needed addition to the body of literature on Indian art. Here at last is a first-hand account, both visual and verbal, of the artists themselves—their lives and their work. These are the artists of today - the individualists—expressing themselves in a deeply personal way, yet retaining all the richness of their cultural heritage.

Included are seventeen Southwestern artists who excel in four major media—painting, sculpture, ceramics, and silver¬smithing. Beautifully conceived and exe¬cuted, the book contains biographies and photographic portraits of each artist, a per¬sonal statement from each, and a represen¬tative grouping in full color of each artist's work.

To assemble this landmark documen¬tary, the authors have made scores of trips throughout Arizona and New Mexico—to the Hopi and Navajo Reservations, the pueblos along the Rio Grande. They have interviewed each artist personally, usually in his own home. They have photographed works in the artists' studios, at exhibits, and in outstanding private and public collections.

Never before has a book revealed Indian artists and their work with such depth and intimacy. It is a must for every serious collector and student of Indian art and culture - for museums, college art librar¬ies, artists—anyone interested in one of America's most exciting and unique art movements.

Lloyd Kiva New states in his foreword – “This book not only opens the door for a frank look at Indian art today, but also pre¬sents a provocative view of what the future of Indian art may be.”
