A remarkable gallery of American Indian portraits
Over several decades renowned Oklahoma artist Charles Banks Wilson sought out " purebloods " (that is Indians of a single tribal heritage) of each of Oklahoma s tribes to create a gallery of American Indian portraits. Search for the Native American Purebloods captures the state s visual heritage in a series of seventy-seven remarkable pencil drawings each accompanied by a narrative describing Wilson s visits with the subject. The first edition Search for the Purebloods served as a catalogue for an exhibition of the artist s work at the United States Capitol. This third edition contains thirteen additional drawings and an afterword by Wilson.
