The Mid-century Masters

Kent McManis, Author

This catalogue features selections from the Wheelwright Museum’s superb collection of Zuni fetishes amassed by Leonora Curtin, mostly between 1925 and the late 1940s. The pieces were made by the first generation of Zuni carvers to create the fetishes for a demanding commercial tourism market. It includes carvings by Theodore Kucate, LeekyarnDeyuse, Teddy Weahkee, Leo Poblano, David Tsikewa, and Morris Laahty.rn
