Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A selection of the Inuit art collection of E. Daniel and Martha L. Albrecht, based in the Heard Museum in Phoenix, is the subject of this handsome oversized (9.75x11.25") catalog, which was published to accompany a traveling exhibition. Expanding beyond description, the entries that accompany each work of art contain lengthy commentary by the work's artist, making this an unusually rich resource for the contemporary art and people of Canada's Arctic. An introductory section discusses the larger context of Inuit art and includes prehistoric examples, also from the Albrecht Collection. The volume is illustrated with copious color plates of the best quality. Distributed in the US by PGW/Perseus. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Covering prehistoric to contemporary works of cultures from Siberia to the Bering Strait, Arctic Spirit is based on one of the world's most important collections of Inuit art. Organized by major themes — the land, the animals, the supernatural — the book showcases sculptures, prints and drawings, and textiles. Highlighting Canadian Inuit works but also including such rarities as ancient Alaskan ivories as well as contemporary Greenlandic tupilaks, Arctic Spirit features extensive commentaries, historical background, and artist interviews in a multifaceted homage to some unique cultures and their art.
