A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This exciting book by a leading younger art historian charts the growth and development of the Maori modernist art that emerged from the rapid urbanisation of Maori in the midtwentieth century and the complex transition of Maori cultural and social structures from a rural to an urban setting. Artists like Arnold Wilson, Para Matchitt and Selwyn Muru, encouraged by Gordon Tovey and the Education Department, constructed a Maori art that reacted against the customary culture championed by Ngata and attempted to respond to the modern world in which they lived.Introductory chapters set the conservative scene against which the artists reacted and a conclusion points forward to contemporary Maori art which, under the impact of the Maori renaissance of the 1970s, showed a renewed focus on tradition. This book includes a rich selection of reproductions of Maori modernist art, many of which are of brilliant works not widely known and often from the artists own collections. This important book will attract widespread attention and interest. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9781869403737

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This investigation into modernist Maori art examines the key artists of the period, such as Arnold Wilson, Para Matchitt, and Selwyn Muru, and others who helped establish a visual response to the rapid urbanization of Maori lands and culture throughout the mid-20th century. Additional research offers insight into the Maori renaissance of the 1970s and how their art served as a means to refocus and preserve their cultural traditions in the face of modern expansion. Art lovers and collectors alike will enjoy this accessible look into an exciting period of Indigenous and Oceanic art. Beautiful photographs of the rarely seen carved artworks, many of which have not yet been published, complement the research.
