Book DescriptionFrederic Whitaker and Eileen Monaghan Whitaker contributed with equal force and distinction to their field. The couple?s watercolors are a delight of parallel and counterpoint, tension, and interplay. Frederic's watercolors fascinatewith their intricate detail and highly structured composition; Eileen's work focuses on quietly startling and mysteriously poignant images. Eileen emphasizes individual expression and abstract elusiveness, while Frederic was devoted to accessibility and ready communication with the viewer. This volume collects an astonishing selection of still lifes, landscapes, figures, travel sketches, and atmospheric renderings. A close and personal biography opens up and contextualizes the artwork, while essays by noted art historians provide critical commentary.
