Rookwood and the American Indian: Masterpieces of American Art Pottery from the James J. Gardner Collection is a remarkable exhibition catalogue of Rookwood art pottery featuring American Indian Portraiture. Rookwood and the American Indian blends anthropology with art history to reveal the relationships between white settlers and Native Americans in general, between Cincinnati and the American Indian in particular, and ultimately between Rookwood artists and their American Indian friends.
