The fine-art Studio of the Santa Fe Indian School, directed by noted educator, curator, and author Dorothy Dunn beginning in 1932, was a major force in bringing American Indian painting to national and worldwide attention. Dunn encouraged students to pursue their own Native artistic tradition, expressing that tradition through a modern language of symbolism and abstraction. Two essays, one by art historian Rushing and the other by anthropologist Bernstein accompany 125 works collected by Dunn, painted by artists such as Joe H. Herrera, Pablita Velarde, Oscar Howe, and Gerald Nailor. 10.25x11.25" Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
