Cornelia Foss is part of a loosely knit group of American artists often described as “painterly realists," a number of whom, such as Eric Fischl and Fairfield Porter and Foss, were captivated by the "Hampton light" of Long Island’s East End. This volume, representing a major survey of Foss's work, includes landscapes, beach scenes, gardens, still-lifes, as well as portraits of writers, composers, fellow artists, family members and friends.


Foss' astonishing and masterly painting style is shown at its best here.  Her art combines a keen eye for the reality of the scene "as it is" with a direct intimacy, and melds bold brushstroke with nuanced attention to detail.  This handsomely designed volume, including over two-hundred excellent photographs of Foss paintings, also offers insightful essays by poet and critic, J.D. McClatchy, playwright John Guare, and curator-art critic Karen Wilkin - as well as a foreword by the artist.  Foss, whose work Michael Kimmelman of The New York Times described as "graceful and mature...full of light and a subtle geometry," is beautifully and fully represented among these pages.
