C. Szwedzicki: The North American Indian Works


A new digital collection is available at the University of Cincinnati Libraries Digital Projects Web site.
C. Szwedzicki: The North American Indian Works , is a collection of 364 images and texts showcasing North American Indian art.

Between 1929 and 1952, C. Szwedzicki, a publisher in Nice, France, produced six portfolios of artwork
created by 20th-century American Indian artists. Many of the images were published as pochoir prints, which are similar in appearance to silk screen prints.

C. Szwedzicki: The North American Indian Works is available to the public. Visitors to the site can view thumbnails and large versions of the images, and then can rotate, zoom in and out, magnify particular
areas, and print the images. Searchable PDF versions of the text of the six portfolios are available on the Web site, in addition to an introductory essay by Janet Catherine Berlo, Professor of Art History and Visual and Cultural Studies at the University of Rochester. The essay includes links to images within the collection and can be used as a navigational tool.
