American Indian Art Magazine Vol. 16, #4 (1991)
American Indian Art Magazine was one of the premier Native Art Magazines for over 40 years. Many of the issues have become classics for their insightful articles on everything from pottery to beadwork. The magazine closed a few years ago and I bought out the remaining issues that were focused on the pottery so each one we are listing is now fully sold out! All issues are in perfect condition.
This is Vol. 16, #4 from 1991. It is one of my favorite issues if you are interested in Early San Ildefonso Pottery. The article, “Three Great Potters of San Ildefonso and their Legacy” is by Johnathan Batkin. If you have seen the recent exhibition at MIAC, many of the pieces in that exhibit are featured in this article! The three primary potters of the article are: Tonita Pena (Yellow Deer), Marianita Roybal, and Dominguita Pena (mother of Tonita Roybal). However, is well-researched and written and includes additional information with photo on Tonita Roybal, Susana Aguilar, Maximiliana “Anna” Martinez, and Cresencio Martinez. There are additional great family trees in the article. Definitely an important issue and great information if you don’t have it! Shipping included.
