Marcia Myers, Twenty Years: Paintings & Works on Paper, 1982-2002

Front Cover
Hudson Hills, 2003 - Art - 271 pages
Ever since she first saw the excavations and frescoes of Pompeii and Herculaneum as a young student in Italy, Marcia Myers has been both haunted and inspired by these ancient Roman ruins. Throughout her career, she has combined this influence from the Roman fresco painters with the Renaissance masters, the Abstract Expressionists, and the colorists of the twentieth century - creating powerful and sensuous paintings that have generated a passionate following and much critical acclaim.
This monograph surveys the past twenty years of Myers' career, covering the complete evolution of her work - from oil-glazes to collage to the dramatic large-scale fresco paintings for which she is known. Never before published images of her works on paper, as well as Myers' own photographs of Pompeii, provide greater insight into her development. Renee H. Shea's essay is enriched by a thorough biography and 164 color illustrations.
