A comprehensive presentation of Emily Mason’s painting and prints

With exquisite full-page color reproductions, Emily Mason: The Light in Spring reveals sixty-eight recent canvases along with thirty-two prints, covering Mason’s work with five master printers. David Ebony continues where he left off in his 2006 volume, Emily Mason: The Fifth Element, elaborating on Mason’s prolific career and her influence as a woman artist working in New York for the past sixty years. Christina Weyl contributes an essay on the history and technique of Mason’s experimental approach to printmaking. Together with editor Ani Boyajian, the authors enrich our understanding of Mason as a bold colorist, fearless experimenter, and dynamic historical presence.

This book will be a delight for fans of Emily Mason and of art and color in general.
