ISBN: 0867130059
Seymour, CT: The Greenwich Workshop, 1988. First Edition. Softcover. "The art of Bev Doolittle encompasses the whimsical, the mystical and the spiritual, and her own unique camouflage concepts. These themes are interwoven within the complete body of her work and each reveals a different aspect of the artist herself. Her style is characterized by meticulous realism, unsparing attention to detail and an extraordinary talent for drawing. Many of her works are narrative, telling a story or capturing a moment in the world of dreams or the realm of the spirit. Her storytelling captures the imagination, compelling the viewer to bring his own understanding to the work." (from foreword) A catalog of artworks by Bev Doolittle, the brilliant & prolific American artist. The artworks, beautifully reproduced in color in this catalog, depict scenes of nature, Native American tableaus & similar themes. The "camouflage" referred to above is a unique, almost Dalinian feature of Doolittle's art- for example, groups of rocks in a stream forming the faces of Native Americans in "The Forest Has Eyes." With texts by Judith Hohl & Doolittle. Large oblong softcover, first edition, presumed first printing. A bold, stunning production; a collectible catalog that serves as an excellent introduction to this outstanding artist's works. In very fine condition with only very slight rubbing & scratching to front, back covers & spine; slightest wear & a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of same; thin band of browning-sunning at/near upper edges of same; one short, closed tear with minimal paper loss at upper spine edge & corners; sparse spotting to edges of text block; sticker for Collectors Gallery in Gainseville, GA affixed to otherwise blank back cover.
