Ives Gammell was one of the most remarkable artists and
teachers of the 20th century. Perhaps
more than anyone else, he taught the principles of representational painting to
his students who in turn have helped initiate a renewed interest in classical painting world-wide. Richard has transcribed all of Mr. Gammell's
letters from 1965-80 and they are fascinating for what they reveal about his
personality, his views on art and other artists, literature, music and life in
general. They also reveal what it was
like to study with him. The advice Mr.
Gammell gave to Richard could apply to anyone interested in becoming an artist.
This 106 page book is richly illustrated with 72 reproductions of paintings by
Mr. Gammell as well as those of several of his students.
