Art as Culture: An Introduction to the Anthropology of Art

About the Illustrations

The illustrations are all line drawings, primarily to keep down the price of the book. Of course they do not convey much of the esthetic quality of the art forms, but neither do they inject an irrelevant esthetic as some color photographs do. If photographs were to be used, they would be field photographs. The drawings do carry information and underscore the idea of first putting aside esthetic reactions and judgment. They have proved to be useful aids in learning to identify styles. One of the pleasures of teaching has been to have students return from some museum telling of the impact of the originals that they recognized and had learned about.

It will be noticed that a number of art works are repeated in different illustrations. This emphasizes the idea that any work has many aspects, brings out different comparisons, cuts down page turning and builds up recognition.

Most of the illustrations were drawn by the author. Where they are reproduced from published works, the source is acknowledged with the word "from"; those redrawn from other drawings or photographs are acknowledged with the word "after." Where possible, the location of the original is given, usually in a museum which the reader may have a chance to visit, but many museums have examples of these styles. The museums where the actual pieces are located are identified by abbreviations at the end of the captions; a key to these abbreviations is provided below. Where no museum or source identification is given, the original is in the author's collection, or, in some cases, as in the case of dancers and costumed figures, the actual drawing is a composite from several sources.
