University of Chicago Press, 1989 [First Edition], hardcover, dustjacket, ISBN 0226680630

Like New Condition

'Challenging Western art connoisseurship and cultural interpretation at the ground level, Sally Price raises disquieting questions about the relationship between "civilized" viewers and "primitive" art objects.  She argues for reconsideration of such notions as the anonymity of primitive artists, the universality of aesthetic canons, the privileged position of literate civilizations, and the value of preserving Culture for Science.  She explores the potential impact of contemporary ideology, politics, gender constructs, and other social and cultural factors on our understanding of how art and art history differ in "primitive" and "civilized" worlds.'
