The life and career of Allan Houser is examined in detail in this book by noted art historian, W. Jackson Rushing.  Houser's early work reflects what  the faculty at the Painting School at the Santa Fe Indian School felt was the proper "Native-American style " of painting. However, Houser was constantly evolving in his style and he mastered a number of styles including abstract works. He was constantly rethinking his work and was alert to developments by his contemporaries.  Until his death in 1994 he continued to evolve, to rethink his work and remaster his art. Lavishly illustrated with photographs taken specifically for this book and supplemented with photographs from the Houser family archives, this book gives a comprehensive view of this remarkable artist.
