Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Southwest, particularly Arizona and New Mexico, comes alive in this book as a land ablaze with colors and brilliance uniquely its own. Here the deep-blue expanse of sky meets the fiery reds and oranges of breathtaking canyons, deserts, and deep valleys, which stretch into rugged mountains. This complex and diverse landscape and the extraordinary cultures thriving within it have been a wellspring of inspiration for artists and source of wonder for many. In paintings by Victor Higgins, Thomas Moran, Edward Hopper, John Sloan, Marsden Hartley, Maynard Dixon, Georgia O'Keeffe and many others we, too, share in visions of the beauty, mystery, and grandeur that has drawn artists and travelers alike to the Southwest.

The breathtaking expanse of the Southwest is nowhere more accessible than in the over ninety glorious landscapes of this book. Accompanying the art are selected writings of such famous authors as D.H. Lawrence and Willa Cather. Suzan Campbell's introduction briefly traces the history of the Southwest along with its continual allure for both regional and visiting artists.

Book News Annotation:

This relatively small (9x7.25<">) paperbound book—a reprint (1994, Chameleon Books)—is an attractive compendium of interest to travellers, artists, and others with a feeling for the landscape of the American Southwest. It presents 95 color plates from 68 artists (among them: Edward Hopper, Marsden Hartley, Georgia O'Keeffe). Accompanying the reproductions are quotes and brief excerpts from writers who, like the painters, were particularly inspired by the region.
