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.
