Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Frank W. Benson (1862-1951), who had dreamed of being an ornithological illustrator while studying at the Boston Museum, where he later became a teacher and director, had a full, award-filled career as a portraitist and painter of plein-air canvases. However, at midlife he chose to change direction and combine his life as an artist with his other passions: wildlife and sporting. Bedford, Benson's biographer (Frank W. Benson: An American Impressionist. o.p.) and guest curator of the retrospective of Benson's work that resulted in Frank W. Benson: New England Impressionist (Peabody Essex Museum, 2000), focuses here on this later period of his work. She draws on family memories and photos, diaries, and letters to acquaint us with an artist of international renown, presenting a devoted family man, keen observer, and consummate sportsman. Benson's etching, lithography, watercolor, and oil illuminate his world through images of geese in flight, hunters and dogs, a lone fisherman, and misty lakes and landscapes. Bedford also includes a chronology of the artist. These two lushly illustrated works make good companions, showing the great talent of American impressionists from a similar period and style. Bedford's is recommended for extensive collections of American art; Larkin's unique study is recommended for all collections. Joseph Hewgley, Nashville P.L.

His work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions worldwide, including U.S. venues such as the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; P.S. 1 Contemporary Art Center, and the Dia Center for the Arts. He died in 1994.

Jannis Kounellis was born in Piraeus, Greece, in 1936. In 1956 he moved to Rome to study at the Accademia di Belle Arti. By the 1960s his work exploring form and materials contributed to the birth of the Arte Povera movement. Recent major exhibitions have been at the Museo Nacional Reina Sofia in Madrid, the ICA in London, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, and The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. He lives and works in Rome, Italy and Dusseldorf, Germany.

Giuseppe Penone was born in 1947 in Italy and grew up on a farm between the Ligurian Alps and the Po Valley. His first solo exhibition was held in 1968 in Turin; recent shows have been mounted at The Drawing Center in New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and Marian Goodman Gallery.

He was recently named one of the top five directors of the 1990is by the Village Voice."

After working as a painter from 1959 to 1964, Giovanni Anselmo turned toconceptual art in 1965 and by 1968 was associated with the emergence of Arte Povera.
