This new monograph from Skira Editore catalogues the work of this important and long overlooked artist, introducing the exuberant paintings of William L. Hawkins to a wider audience at a time when museums are beginning to recognize the powerful appeal of America’s self-taught artists.
William L. Hawkins: An Imaginative Geography includes some fifty of the artist’s most important paintings, covering all of Hawkins’ favorite subjects: from cityscapes and landscapes to exotic places, animals, current events, and historic and religious scenes.
Drawing special attention to Hawkins’ use of space, his collage practice, and his work in series, An Imaginative Geography offers the most extensive interpretive scholarship on Hawkins to date. It includes illustrated essays by scholars Susan Mitchell Crawley and Jenifer P. Borum.
