Art of Dahlov Ipcar Book of the Year Finalist
ForeWord Reviews is pleased to announce that Carl Little’s The Art of Dahlov Ipcar, published by Down East Books of Camden, Maine, is a finalist for the 2010 Book of the Year Awards in the Art category. Selected from among more than 1400 entries, the finalists represent the best work of independent publishers across the nation. Winners will be announced at Book Expo America in New York in May.
Representing more than seventy years of work, this new book is the first retrospective publication of Dahlov Ipcar’s art. Best known for her vibrant collage-style paintings of animals, Ipcar’s talents have earned her wide recognition. Her work is included in the permanent collections of many museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Her numerous solo shows include a one-woman show at the Museum of Modern Art in 1939, when she was 21. In addition to being a successful painter, Ipcar has illustrated more than thirty children’s books, many of which she also wrote, and she has written four novels. Now in her nineties, she still paints every day at her home in Georgetown, Maine.
Carl Little is the author of several art books, and lives with his family in Somesville, Maine.
ForeWord Reviews' Book of the Year Awards program was established to help publishers shine an additional spotlight on their best titles and bring increased attention to librarians and booksellers of the literary and graphic achievements of independent publishers and their authors.
