About this title:
About the Author:
It was important to me to find the right balance of male and female painters, and as much diversity of ethnic backgrounds as possible while still respecting the genre of landscape painting first and foremost. The big stars in the book are Wolf Kahn, Alex Katz (though I show work for which he is not well known), Richard Estes, Wayne Thiebaud, etc. Yes, all white men. So, I included some of my very favorite painters who deserve to be right there with the big guys: they are the grande dames Lois Dodd, Sylvia Plimack-Mangold, Yvonne Jacquette and Jane Freilicher.
The selection process of all the artists was meant to show a visual spectrum, from representational and perhaps more traditional styles of painting to the totally abstract, non-objective works. Taken together, each chapter presents the full spectrum of styles and careers. The selection is unique and no one will be familiar with all of the artists included.
