“A fascinating glimpse into the mind of this intriguing artist.” —Maine Antique Digest

The definitive text on artist Otis Kaye, considered a master of trompe l’oeil painting and allegory

To look at a still life by twentieth century artist Otis Kaye is to enter a world of filled with minute details. Seduced by the painting’s semblance reality, its beckoning illusionism, the viewer moves in to examine object after object, scrap after scrap, discovering clues, texts, and felicitous arrangements that portray pithy morals and bitter truths. This catalogue, the definitive study of Kaye, delves into the intricate details and mysteries of his life and works.

This book will be appreciated by art historians, art aficionados, educators, and anyone who seeks to learn more about trompe l’oeil and this fascinating artist.
