Two Centuries of Haida Art

Book - 2006
Rate this:
ONLY IN RECENT YEARS has First Nations art been appreciated on its artistic merits alone, apart from any ritual and cultural context. This exploration of the extraordinary achievement of Haida art resituates a great tradition in a contemporary context. Key themes skilfully interwoven throughout the text include the defining myths of origins; the structures of ownership and privilege; the influence of early master-carvers; and the monumental achievements of Charles Edenshaw, Bill Reid, Robert Davidson and many others. The breakout aesthetics of contemporary Haida work in many media receive due recognition in this assemblage of powerful work by the leading scholars in the field, which includes more than 120 finely reproduced full-colour images.
