“Nostalgia is part of my respect for what LeConte Stewart does. But the hard-mouthed integrity of the life-view is more important. There is something in his best paintings that does not depend on nostalgia but upon recognition of a less parochial kind.” Wallace Stegner
“One of Utah’s most accomplished and beloved artists.” —Utah Museum of Fine Arts
Utah artist LeConte Stewart (1891–1990) created images of Utah and the West at once epic and intimate. His farms, deserts, and urban landscapes capture a region and an era. Influenced by John Carlson, Maynard Dixon, and Edward Hopper, Stewart is a valued and important voice in this period of American art. This long-awaited volume includes more than 300 paintings, many never before seen or brought together in one work.
Includes essays by Mary Muir, Donna Poulton, Robert Davis, James Poulton, and Vern Swanson. It also features an introduction by noted American art scholar, curator, and collector William Gerdts.
Mary Muir is one of the foremost authorities on LeConte Stewart and his work, and the author of LeConte Stewart: The Education of the Artist and the Artist- Educator.
