An exquisite collection of twentieth century Native American art. "In the Spirit of the Ancestors" documents the Kappmeyer collection, an outstanding group of works celebrating excellence in pottery, kachinas, weavings, basketry, metalwork, painting, and sculpture. Against a backdrop of beautiful full-color and vintage photographs, "In the Spirit" documents this important collection, providing fascinating introduction to Southwestern Native American art. Over 80 photographs illustrate more than 300 works of art, most of which have not been previously published. From the matriarchs of pueblo pottery to some of today's most exciting young innovators, this is a significant document of the rare and previously unpublished work of a group of important artists. The Kappmeyer collection demonstrates the ongoing evolution of Native American art forms; grounded in tradition, but responsive to the expressive needs of contemporary artists.
