Sepik Ramu Art
This Sepik Ramu Art book project follows on from previous Solomon Islands and Bismarck Archipelago art publications as a large-format, luxurious and heavily illustrated guide to the arts of this unique region.
This volume edited by Kevin Conru presents many previously unpublished masterpieces coming from historical collections and over 200 artworks selected represent the wide and varied scope of art made there.
The objects are lavishly photographed by Hughes Dubois and accompanied by numerous historic black and white images with a survey of early photography by Virginia-Lee Webb. Crispin Howarth undertakes a study of masks and figures and Barry Craig, who first undertook fieldwork in New Guinea in 1964, narrates the progression of illustrations throughout, as one who has studied the Sepik Ramu region both in depth and in situ.
