by W. Jackson Rushing and Allan Houser
The art world's best-known Native American artist, the Chiricahua Apache sculptor and painter Allan Houser (1914-1994), was one of the towering figures of 20th-century art. His larger-than-life sculpture Sacred Rain Arrow welcomed athletes to the 2002 Winter Olympics; his powerfully moving bronze Offering of the Sacred Pipe, created for the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, has become a worldwide symbol of peace. In 1992 Houser (Haozous in his native language) became the first Native American to receive the country's highest art award, the National Medal of Arts.This beautifully illustrated volume is the first art-historical treatment of Houser's entire career.
