Synopsis:

Maria, the potter of San Ildefonso (1887–1981), is not only the most famous of Pueblo Indian potters but ranks among the best of international potters. Her work Is collected and exhibited around the world, and more than any other artist, Maria Martinez brought "signatures" to Indian art. She and other members of her family revived a dying art form and kindled a renaissance in pottery for all the Pueblos. She raised this regional art to one of international acclaim. This lavishly illustrated book draws from Spivey's 1979 classic work. Featuring entirely new photography and 120 added pots as well as a significantly expanded text, this volume considers the entirety of this artist's immense oeuvre and important works and developments in her collaboration with Julian, and after his death, with her daughter-in-law Santana, son Popovi Da, and grandson Tony Da, bringing the legacy of Maria into the bright future of Pueblo ceramics.

About the Author:

Richard L. Spivey is a recognized expert on contemporary Pueblo Indian pottery. He lives in Pebble Beach, California.

(some col.) ; 33 cm. some very minor wear to DJ, else as New. '"The ceramicist Maria Poveka Martinez (1887-1980), known to the world as "Maria," continues, more than two decades after her death, to be the most famous and recognizable Native American artist ever known. The Legacy of Maria Poveka Martinez is Richard L. Spivey's tribute to a friendship with a great artist that began with Maria's son Popovi Da and extended to Maria and to many of her family members who joined over the years in the collaborations that brought San Ildefonso ceramic art to the world while reviving its ancient roots for every generation of artist to come." "Two hundred examples of Maria's pottery are reproduced, many heretofore hidden in private collections and museum storage. Among these are nine magnificent storage jars comprising the entirety of the artist's production in this form. The author's long association with the family yields reflections on the artist and her important collaborative relationships with Julian Martinez, their son Popovi Da, and daughter-in-law Santana Martinez. The artistic achievements of Maria and Julian's descendants document significant developments in Pueblo ceramics at San Ildefonso. Many of grandson Tony Da's works are assembled for the first time."--Jacket. '. Bookseller Inventory # 2jk115
