About the Author

Author: Kaeppler, Adrienne; Adrienne Kaeppler is curator of Oceanic ethnology at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D. C. She has carried out field research in Tonga, Hawai'i, and elsewhere in Polynesia. Renowned for her work on the ethnography and collections from Cook's voyages, she continues to focus on connections between social structure and the visual and performing arts.

Reviews

Lavishly produced, richly illustrated and revealing one of the largest and finest private collections of Oceanic art in existence, Polynesia is a sumptuous volume in every sense. It is striking not only for the outstanding importance of the works illustrated but also for its rich contextual documentation. . . . Adrienne Kaeppler is rightly considered the doyenne of Oceanic studies, and her introduction and regional essays bring a lifetime of connoisseurship, ethnographic research and historical knowledge to bear, so that this book offers a truly valuable and authoritative overview of the area.-- "The World of Interiors"
