Five American Painters: Lois Dodd, Rackstraw Downes, David Driskell, Yvonne Jacquette, Alex Katz by Sharon Corwin
Over the course of nearly a decade, former Carolyn Muzzy Director and Chief Curator at the Colby College Museum Art Sharon Corwin interviewed five painters with special relationships to Maine—Lois Dodd, Rackstraw Downes, the late David Driskell, Yvonne Jacquette, and Alex Katz. Through these conversations, transcribed and collected in this publication, the artists share about their rich and lengthy careers, their artistic process, and Maine's influence on their life and practice. However varied these artists’ engagements are with their surroundings, what emerge as common threads are a lifelong commitment to the medium of painting, as well as an appreciation of Maine as a crucial source of community, a seasonal home, and artistic subject.
