Overview

Since 1988, Dahlov Ipcar has painted fifteen distinctive paintings in her series of Circle Paintings. In the 1970s, the artist developed a fascination with kaleidoscopic images”or rather, with the images seen through a teleidoscope (like a kaleidoscopic, but with a clear lens), which are based on whatever the viewer focuses on, rather than being dependent on bits of glass or objects inside the instrument. In Ipcar's paintings, however, the images do not repeat themselves, and the results are complex and intriguing. In each painting, circles within circles depict variations on the main theme, often of animals or the natural world, and the outer corners of the square canvas depict a supplementary aspect. This calendar features fourteen of these fifteen extraordinary paintings.

Meet the Author

Born in Vermont in 1917, Dahlov Zorach was raised in New York City by her parents, the famed sculptor William Zorach and artist Marguerite Zorach. The family spent many summers at their 1820s farmhouse in Georgetown, Maine, where she met Adolph Ipcar. She and Adolph married in 1936 and the following year, they moved permanently to Maine, where she has farmed, painted, and worked on writing and illustrating books ever since. Today, Ipcar's intricate, vibrant, and fanciful artwork is known worldwide, and her paintings are in the permanent collections of numerous renowned museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Her unique and distinctly modern style has helped change the role of artwork in children's literature. Her work has earned her the prestigious Kerlan Award in Children's Literature in 1998, the Katahdin Award in 2001; and the New England Independent Booksellers Association President's Award in 2010.
