Arctic Spirit by Ingo Hessel

Book Description

A detailed examination of 190 masterworks of Inuit art, this beautifully illustrated work is a groundbreaking survey of one of the world's most unique art traditions. In one short decade, Dan and Martha Albrecht put together one of the finest collections of Inuit art ever assembled - nearly 4,000 pieces. Their closest advisor, Ingo Hessel, uses the most impressive pieces in their collection to bring the breadth and history of Inuit art to life. More than half the text is written by the artists themselves, illuminating the context of their work.
