James Fitzgerald
A biography by Calvin Hennig

“In all of Fitzgerald’s work, vigorous handling and bold use of drawing and color, whether in oil or watercolor, seemingly rhyme with the artist’s sense of nature and human experience as elemental, profound, and free. Calvin Hennig’s monograph remains the definitive study of the life of this important artist”. — Chris Crosman, Director, William A. Farnsworth Library and Art Museum

“This monograph of James Fitzgerald by Calvin Hennig is and always will be the basic building block of scholarship and understanding of the artist. Contextually, conceptually, stylistically, and philosphically, Mr. Hennig sets the parameters of Fitzgerald’s time and art. Unlike so much art history, it is also a good read — a literary artwork in itself”. — Edward R. Brohel, Director, Plattsburgh State Art Museum

“A very interesting and readable biography of a modern master who is now receiving the attention and acclaim he deserves”. — Edward L. Deci, President, Monhegan Museum Association
