LeConte Stewart

LeConte Stewart

Perhaps the most insightful statement about LeConte Stewart in this very lovely book of over 300 paintings and works on paper — with five accompanying scholarly essays — is made by the publisher in his brief foreword. “He was very durable,” writes Gibbs Smith, who knew the artist from childhood (his mother took painting lessons from Stewart). And durable he had to be, to live to the age of 99 and create almost until the end of his life.

Ann Poore takes a look at the new definitive work on LeConte Stewart in the December 2012 edition of 15Bytes.
