The Eugene B. Adkins Collection: Selected Works

by

The Eugene B. Adkins Collection: Selected Works Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Eugene B. Adkins (1920–2006) spent nearly four decades acquiring his extraordinary collection of Native American and American southwestern art. His vast assemblage includes paintings, photographs, jewelry, baskets, textiles, and ceramics by many of the Southwest’s most renowned artists and artisans. This stunning volume features full-color reproductions of significant works from the Adkins Collection, some of which are reproduced here for the first time.

Adkins began collecting in the 1960s, when American southwestern art enjoyed a resurgence in popularity. Ultimately his holdings encompassed works by such distinguished American artists as Maynard Dixon, Dorothy Eugenie Brett, Charles Bird King, Alfred Jacob Miller, Charles M. Russell, and Joseph H. Sharp. In addition, Adkins was a passionate and prescient connoisseur of Native American art and artifacts, and his wide-ranging collection of works by Native artists includes paintings by T. C. Cannon, sculpture by María Martínez, and jewelry by Charles Loloma, all of which are represented in this book.

Along with its rich photographic sampling of works by Native and non-Native artists, The Eugene B. Adkins Collection offers informative essays by art historians and curators, whose areas of expertise coincide with Adkins’s own interests. The volume also features a foreword by David L. Boren, President of the University of Oklahoma, and a preface by Randall Suffolk, Director of the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, and Ghislain D’Humieres, Director of the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma. These two museums, which share a commitment to preserving Native American art and artifacts, are joint stewards of the Eugene B. Adkins Collection.

Book News Annotation:

Eugene B. Adkins (1920-2006) collected Native American and American Southwestern art, from paintings and photographs through jewelry and other crafts. This book displays selected works from the collection, which is now housed at the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa and the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art in Norman, Oklahoma. The breadth of the collection is displayed with color paintings, drawings, and photos on every page. The book also includes essays by art historians and curators and the stewards of the Eugene B. Adkins collection. Essays cover Adkins's life and how he built the collection over 40 years, and touch on time and modernity in the art of the American Southwest, photography of the American Southwest, Native American paintings and sculpture, Native jewelry and silverwork, and Native American pottery, baskets, and textiles.
