Foreword by Donald Kuspit
David Ligare’s paintings of figures, landscapes, architectural subjects, and still lifes are permeated by the lessons of antiquity, promoting Classical ideals as relevant to modern life and featuring California light and land.
315 x 280 mm
David Ligare expands the realist tradition through the very unreality of his art. Since the late 1970s, he has used his considerable technical skills and historical knowledge to create perfectly ordered Classical paintings influenced and informed by the ancient Greeks. Setting subjects within the specifics of California he bathes them in the pure and wondrous light of the coast. Released in conjunction with the exhibition organized by the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, this publication features revelatory essays, a chronology, and more than 200 reproductions and photographs.Purchase on Amazon
