Until this trailblazing 1993 book, now reissued in paperback, much attention had been given to the connection between modern art and indigenous African forms, while pre-Columbian sources of modern art had been largely unexplored. Correcting this oversight, Barbara Braun offers an in-depth look at Paul Gauguin, Frank Lloyd Wright, Diego Rivera, Henry Moore, and Joaqun Torres Garca and the pre-Columbian forms that provided inspiration for their art, dramatizing the often surprising comparisons in over 300 striking illustrations. Together with an overview of more recent artists who continue to be indebted to ancient American forms and ideas, this "groundbreaking, exciting study fills a major gap in our understanding of modern art.
