Originally published in conjunction with a 2003 exhibition organized by the Anchorage Museum of History and Art and curated by Suzi Jones and Walter Van Horn, "Eskimo Drawings" marks the first time that Alaska Eskimo art-work has been the exclusive subject of a major exhibition and publication. Accompanied by full-color illustrations, as well as black-and-white photographic reproductions, "Eskimo Drawings" features only a few works that have ever been exhibited previously, while showcasing the work of previously undiscovered Eskimo artists. Covering topics as diverse as artistic considerations in the Eskimo graphic arts and an analysis of the work of Happy Jack and Guy Kakarook, this remarkable volume includes contributions by Susan W. Fair, Russell Hartman, Herbert O. Anungazuk, Steve Henrikson, Molly Lee, Mary Jane Anuqsraaq Melovidov, Patrick Minock, David Mollett, Dorothy Jean Ray, Susie Silook, Birgitte Sonne, and David P. Sweeney.Not to be missed by any art historian with an interest in Alaska Eskimo and Alaska Native art, this fascinating collection is an unsurpassed survey of the field.
