The Official Price Guide to Native American Art

Front Cover
Random House, 2003 - Antiques & Collectibles - 508 pages
The ranks of Native American art collectors has grown exponentially, and the time is right for a thorough guide to the field. An expert in Native American collectibles, author Dawn Reno consulted with a host of auctioneers, collectors, museums, and historical societies to write The Official "RM" Price Guide to Native American Art, creating a compendium of everything a collector needs to know when buying or selling artifacts.

The book lists more than a thousand artists from all over the continent (along with a biography of each), galleries representing them, museums exhibiting their art, an index of artists by tribe, and the values and prices of specific pieces. Each chapter in The Official "RM" Price Guide to Native American Art discusses a different genre of Native American art, including fine art, baskets, beadwork, dolls, wood carvings, featherwork, jewelry, leather, pottery, quilt-work, sandpainting, sculpture, silversmithing, and textiles. CompLetely illustrated, it also contains a resource for online research.
