Bill Holm is internationally recognized as a leading expert on Northwest Coast, Plateau, and Plains Indian art. As curator emeritus of Native American art at the Burke Museum, professor emeritus of art history at the University of Washington, and author of numerous books and articles, including the classic work 'Northwest Coast Indian Art: An Analysis of Form', he has established an unparalleled reputation as a scholar, teacher, and craftsman. For many years he has also produced detailed paintings that draw on his enthographic expertise to recreate the settings in which the old Native American art objects were used. This eagerly awaited book makes available for the first time forty-nine full-colour reproductions of Bill Holm's paintings and traditional Indian scenes, produced from the 1950s to the present. Also included are small watercolors and drawings Holm has made on envelopes, and three-dimensional pieces, some of which were created as artifacts for the paintings. In addition to being visually effective, the pictures provide a wealth of ethnographic detail, from the eagle down scattered by the Kwakiutl to welcome important guests, to the sun dogs - bright spots near the horizon that mimic the sun - featured in myths from many northern tribes. A lengthy descriptive caption by the artist accompanies each painting. Seattle: University of Washington Press, 2000; Vancouver: Douglas & McIntyre, 2000.
