Covarrubias, Miguel
The origins of Native Americans are traced through art forms in this history of American art. The basic time periods for this history are determined and defined as the formative horizon, the classic horizon, and the historical horizon. Art forms used throughout these time periods are described in terms of technique and aesthetics. The arts and crafts include basketry, papermaking, textile-weaving, feather mosaic, porcupine-quill embroidery, beadwork, sculpture, stonework, jade work, woodcarving, pottery-making, clay-modeling, painting, and lacquer work. The art of North American natives is described by geographical area: the Arctic, the Northwest, the Far West, the Southwest, and the Eastern Woodlands. A bibliography is included. (PS)
