One of the most comprehensive exhibitions of Pacific Art ever mounted was held the summer of 1979 at the National Gallery of Art. This dazzling exhibition was comprised of over 400 objects, many of them never before exhibited or published--drawn from museum and private collections in thirteen countries--and most dating back to pre-contact periods. This splendid, profusely illustrated catalogue is one of the major documents published on the arts of the Pacific.
