Letters to Isabella: Paintings by Marley Kaul

06/26/2016 - 12:00pm

Marley Kaul's stunning new book, Letters to Isabella: Paintings by Marley Kaul presents seventy-seven egg tempera works each accompanied by a letter written to his granddaughter. It offers beautiful full-color reproductions of his paintings and is an intimate look at his artistic process and the unique personal and professional influences reflected in his work.

In 2003 Marley learned he would become a grandfather. He thought about his granddaughter-to-be and wondered if he would still be around years from now to tell her about himself in person, or if she would have to speculate about his life and art after he was gone. He decided that in case he was unable to be there when she grew up, he would compose a letter to her so she could read it later and know a little more about him.

As time went on, Marley got to know his granddaughter quite well, but he continued writing her the letters, filling them with his advice, insights and descriptions of his painting techniques. These letters and the colorful egg tempera paintings they refer to come together now in this vibrant art book. This fine art book features 77 vivid color plates on the highest quality archival paper.
