Chicago was the gateway to the Old West, the source of the city's wealth and the inspiration, for many of its artists and art collectors, who found in Native American culture a profound alternative to their own regimented lives. Barter, a curator at the Art Institute of Chicago, eloquently relates the fascinating, heretofore little studied story of the symbiosis between Chicago's art world and the West in sync with a treasury of works found in the museum's lavish permanent collection, many not seen by the public in decades. Sensitive to both social and artistic issues, Barter writes with zest and insight about various artists' attempts to depict Native Americans with "a balance of idealism and realism--of aesthetic and ethnographic concerns." The works of Frederic Remington, Georgia O'Keeffe, the portraitist Elbridge Ayer Burbank, William Penhallow Henderson, whose vital and expressive paintings evince the influence of Cezanne and Gauguin, and many others are evocatively illuminated in this beautifully produced "window" on our ever-evolving interpretation of the West, a key facet of the American mythos.
