Abstract

In this book, Evelyn Hatcher reviews and rejects common myths about the pristine nature of "traditional" arts and looks unfettered by common snobberies at "tourist" art: art Made for Trade. She found ways to use theories without making the ideological commitments that fuel much academic debate. She loved to debate the issues, always with endless good will. Her work shows the attention to detail and to objects, which she learned from her parents, who were both painters; but she also has the broad perspective and ability to generalize that she shared with her husband, Jack, who was an engineer. As she often said, she was "born to art and married science," and she had a great deal more sophistication in both arenas than do most of the rest of us in anthropology.
