Angel DeCora, the best-known Native American artist in the United States before World War I, is rarely discussed by early historians of Native American art. These historians valued what they considered authenticity, defined as an absence of modern and European influences. DeCora was educated by some of the country`s leading European American artists, and she used European elements such as vanishing-point perspective to depict Native American subjects Hutchinson argues that this should not preclude DeCora`s work from being considered Native American art. She suggests that by representing the intersection between Native American and European American culture, DeCora`s work challenged the European American view of Native American culture as belonging only to the past, presenting instead of an image of survival and adaptation.

1. It can be inferred that Hutchinson would be most likely to agree with which of the following statements about Native American art?

A. It is unlikely to develop further in the direction charted by Angel DeCora.
B. It has been misrepresented by art historians who apply European criteria to art that was not intended to reflect European aesthetic values.
C. It is most authentic when it uses traditional Native American methods to describe traditional Native American subject matter.
D. It has traditionally used European elements in ways that differ from the use that European American artists make of those elements.
E. It can adopt new elements in response to changing cultural conditions and still remain Native American art.

2. The passage let which of the following about the " early historians of Native American art " mentioned in the passage?

A. Their views of Native American art were strongly influenced by Native Americans` criteria for determining whether art authentically represented their cultures.
B. Their criteria for judging the authenticity of Native American art gave primacy to subject matter over technique.
C. They included in histories of Native American art only works created prior to the period of Native Americans` contact with Europeans.
D. They would regard the use of vanishing-point perspective as an inauthentic element in a painting by a Native American artist.
E. They were probably familiar with Angel DeCora`s art but unaware that she was Native American.

1. It can be inferred that Hutchinson would be most likely to agree with which of the following statements about Native American art?
Passage summary: A's work was an artist was disapproved by historians since they thought her work wasn't authentically Native American. Her work had European influence- vanishing point. H argues that that shows NA's ability to adapt, which is representative of NA's art.

1. It can be inferred that Hutchinson would be most likely to agree with which of the following statements about Native American art?

A. It is unlikely to develop further in the direction charted by Angel DeCora.
false- H has a positive view of A
B. It has been misrepresented by art historians who apply European criteria to art that was not intended to reflect European aesthetic values.
H does agree that Historians misinterpreted A's art, but this choice is saying that art historians applied European criteria-- historians aren't applying European criteria to art. Historians are saying that A's work isn't NA because it has European elements.
C. It is most authentic when it uses traditional Native American methods to describe traditional Native American subject matter.
false- H thinks that A's work is still NA art. "Hutchinson argues that this should not preclude DeCora`s work from being considered Native American art. "
D. It has traditionally used European elements in ways that differ from the use that European American artists make of those elements.
no comparison made between how Europeans use elements vs how NAs use those European elements
E. It can adopt new elements in response to changing cultural conditions and still remain Native American art.
"Correct- eCora`s work challenged the European American view of Native American culture as belonging only to the past, presenting instead of an image of survival and adaptation."

2. The passage let which of the following about the " early historians of Native American art " mentioned in the passage?

first half of the passage. Main point: art should be authentic- european influence means it isn't authentic (that's why A's work isn't NA) "These historians valued what they considered authenticity, defined as an absence of modern and European influences. "

A. Their views of Native American art were strongly influenced by Native Americans` criteria for determining whether art authentically represented their cultures. Native Americans did not have a criteria
B. Their criteria for judging the authenticity of Native American art gave primacy to subject matter over technique. no mention of subject matter vs technique
C. They included in histories of Native American art only works created prior to the period of Native Americans` contact with Europeans. not mentioned
D. They would regard the use of vanishing-point perspective as an inauthentic element in a painting by a Native American artist. correct. They only view authentic as without European influence. A's use of vanishing point would be inauthentic.
E. They were probably familiar with Angel DeCora`s art but unaware that she was Native American. false
