OP VISIONS OF THE PEOPLE: A PICTORIAL HISTORY OF PLAINS INDIAN LIFE. Evan M. Maurer et al. Minneapolis Institute of Arts, 1992. Distributed by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 298 pp. with 383 ills. (110 col.). 28 x 30 cm. LC 92-85422 ISBN 0295972297 In English.
A substantial survey of the cultural and artistic traditions of the Plains Indians of North America, this catalogue features illustrations and detailed individual discussions of more than 300 works dating chiefly from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including garments, weapons, amulets and numerous paintings on hide and fabric portraying ceremonial dances and scenes of battle. Five scholarly essays present a historical overview of the art of the Plains Indians, discuss the symbolic significance of the warbonnet, examine the image of the horse in pictographic works, and analyze a turn-of-the-century Lakota narrative painting depicting events surrounding the 1876 Battle of the Little Big Horn.
