Earth Songs, Moon Dreams: Paintings by American Indian Women is a celebration of the contributions of Native American women to America's cultural heritage.
Focusing on both traditional and modern art and offering an historical and stylistic overview, Broder's book includes the work of Native American women belonging to more than forty tribes across the United States and Canada. Earth Songs, Moon Dreams features historically important works by pioneer artists of the early twentieth century, classic examples of the Indian-School tradition, examples of the first successful attempts to interpret the techniques of modernism as compatible with the symbols and stylistic conventions of traditional Indian art, and examples of the work of the most innovative and accomplished Native American women painting today.
Includes over 100 gorgeous, full color reproductions. Broder has prepared an introduction on each artist and then presents one or two samples of her work.
