Craze, Sophia,
Mary Cassatt.
N. Dighton, MA, JG Press, (1990). 5th ptg. VG in VG DJ. A glorious copy. Full color pages in this oversized copy 10-1/2 by 14-1/2", robin's egg blue endpapers. In a Victorian age when most women were confined to the circumscribed world of marriage, homemaking and motherhood, Cassatt blazed like a shooting-star across the firmament of the male-dominated international art world, the greatest American female artist of her time. The only American, male or female, to become a member of the group that revolutionized western art, the French Impressionists. Beginning as a realist in the classical Italian tradition, she smootly and dazzlingly made the transition to Impressionism and then went on to become one of the first westerners to apply the principles of Japanese ukiyo-e printmaking to her work. By the time of her mature style, she was the mistress of virtually every available graphic medium - oils, watercolors, pastel, aquatint, drypoint, soft-ground etching plus several more. Here art historian Sophia Craze gives us an intimate look at Cassatt's extraordinary life and provides us with a valuable introduction to Cassatt's work, the greatest of which is here faithfully reproduced in full color.

Culver, Michael, curator, Ogunquit Museum of American Art,
George Lloyd Paintings: the Maine years (exhibition Ogunquit Maine 2001).
Ogunquit, ME, Ogunquit Musem, (2001). VG PB. Paintings completed by Lloyd since his arrival in Maine are his most original and mature works. His current art is a synthesis. of painterly abstraction in the style of Willem de Kooning and Hans Hofmann and of the classic tradition where the artist consciously controls space, color, and composition. A careful examination of a Lloyd painting reveals an infinite space within which color and shape move in many directions, creating a tension barely held by the borders of the composition.
