From the South Seas (N° 19370) Deposit sale

Momentary out of stock.

Guinea to New Zealand, from Easter Island to Hawaii, the Pacific region called Oceania has long excited the Western imagination, but it is only recently that its traditional sculptures, pots and paintings have been studied and appreciated as art.
While much remains mysterious about these works and the cultures that produced them, we do know that most of the objects were created for use in everyday life rather than as products for the art market. Nevertheless, their beauty and craftsmanship elevate the best of them to the status of objects of contemplation and wonder.
This catalog presents some 80 works of Oceanic art, each illustrated with its described form and function. Michael Gunn's introduction puts the works into context; Christraud Geary discusses their provenance; and contextual photographs show many objects in situ, providing a better understanding of these intriguing but still elusive works and increasing knowledge and interest in Oceania.
