Overview

Hiram Williams: Images of Compassion explores the art and life of Hiram Williams, exposing his power not only as a painter, but as an interpreter of American culture. The author combines his knowledge and observations of his close friend Williams' life and work with material gathered through hours of interviews with Williams and many of his friends and associates, including art critics, art historians, and museum and gallery directors. His closeness to Williams gave the author the opportunity to observe his images as they took form, yet the author also provides objective commentary, which when combined with the interviews of the others provides a thorough examination of Williams' life and work. This book provides a greater recognition of the powerful work of Hiram Williams, and places him in the company of other painters who have developed within American culture.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Larson, an educator and activist and a long-time friend of Williams, analyzes a great many of his abstract paintings (reproduced as small b&w images). The best parts, aside from the paintings, are direct quotes from Williams, his reflections on his art and career, and his stories about art scenes past and present. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
