Art of the American Indian Frontier:
The Chandler-Pohrt Collection

By: David W. Penney

The Detroit Institute of Arts possesses an incomparable collection of nineteenth-century Native American art from the North American Woodlands, Prairie, and Plains.  The collection resulted from the efforts of Milford G. Chandler and Richard A. Pohrt, whose early childhood fascination with the Indian frontier past evolved into a deep and comprehensive interest in Native American ceremonies, beliefs, and art.  Though neither was wealthy or enjoyed the sponsorship of a museum. they traveled extensively early in the twentieth century, buying or trading for objects they could not resist.

This volume present the Chandler-Pohrt collection with detailed documentation and commentary.  Clothing and accessories of porcupine quill and buckskin, woven textiles, bags, beadwork, necklaces, rawhide paintings, smoking pipes, tools, vessels and utensils, pictographs, and visionary painting are portrayed in 220 stunning color plates.
