Oceanic Art. by Adrienne L. Kaeppler, Douglas Newton, Christian Kaufmann. Oceania is made up of thousands of islands, from the vast territory of New Guinea to a myriad of tiny coral atolls, and its indigenous peoples have developed civilizations of enormous variety. In most of these societies, art holds a crucial position in both social and religious life, and includes not only architecture, painting and sculpture, but also music, dance, prayer and body decoration.

Adrienne Lois Kaeppler (born 1935) is an American anthropologist, curator of Oceanic Ethnology at the National Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. Since 2005, she has been President of the International Council on Traditional Music.

Wonderful! I purchased this for one of my courses but I have utilized it far beyond. It is so insightful and beautiful; and the works of art are extraordinary.
Wrathshaper
I read an on-line version through my local library. This version seems rather shorter than the hardcover, based on page numbers. I agree with earlier readers that this is a solid, well-written and nicely illustrated survey of a vast region.

A problem for dealing with art from the area is that so much of the available information and sample works are based on a kind of combination of anthropology and the concept of "primitive art." I think we should junk that term "primitive" and just credit people who create art, whether in Melanesia or Manhattan, with knowledge of tradition and the intelligence to adapt it (doubtless there are untalented artists in all traditions). This book shows a wide range of objects and areas.

There is coverage of sculpture, carvings (I'd make a slight differentiation from formal sculpture and decorative carving), feather work, clothing, tattoos and structures (such as "Men's Houses" as described in anthropological accounts).

One important concept: the author says that most of these people had no specific words for "art," and their art forms integrated objects of the kind illustrated in this book, with dance, music, social status and symbol.

The book gives an excellent overview of the art in the Oceanic region with special emphasis on New Guinea.
The contributions are organised geographically and then by tribes. The book not only depicts extraordinary and seldom documented works of art from museums and private collections but also provides valuable information on the ethnological and social context of the works displayed.
Photographs and layout are outstanding and the printing is of the highest quality.
It is a must for all those interested in the art of the region or in tribal art in general.
Nothing personal
This is the authorative book on Oceanic Art. This book is for the serious student/art historian. It is about as complete as a book can be about this subject. Some of the material is a bit dated, like all books dealing with history. The images are great with good detail. This is used as a textbook for classes dealing with oceanic art. It is very enjoyable to read. I would also recommend this book for the nonstudent interested in the art of the pacific.
