1min read

The works of Indian artists shown here and on the pages that follow portray in a somewhat chronological sequence the development of Indian painting, at the same time reflecting some of the indigenous iconography and the concerns of the foremost native painters. The various works appear in Jamake Highwater’s book Song From The Earth: American Indian Painting , to be published later this month by the New York Graphic Society.
