Chatwin Books, 2019. First Edition. Paperback. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. New. Item #005502934
New! Edited by Phil Bevis and Tori Champion. Chatwin is proud to release the first major survey of the life and work of Utah artist Gaell Lindstrom (1919-2009). Lindstrom was an artist whose search for inspiration took him from portraying the people and places of his native Utah and the American West to Mexico, Guatemala, Italy, Morocco, and China. Deeply grounded in region and faith, Lindstrom’s work testifies to his dedication to craft, which was the foundation for his long and influential career as an art professor. The 130 illustrations, including 100 color plates, showcase Lindstrom’s mastery of form and texture, and his ability to capture the stillness of the moment in landscapes and urbanscapes. The texts are by Dr. James Swensen of Brigham Young University, and the artist’s son, Dr. Braden Lindstrom of Dixie State University. They examine the arc of Lindstrom’s work as a painter and photographer, his relationships with other Utah artists, his artistic influences, teaching philosophy, travels and study abroad (particularly in China and with Chinese artists), and family life and background.
