This exhibition catalogue explores an important aspect of the career of the American artist Henry Cooke White (1861-1952). While his oil paintings are widely admired by collectors and museums, his accomplishments in pastel are less well known; and yet, they are breathtaking in their variety, intensity of color, and, at times, abstract boldness. Here is a new side of White’s art making, in which he experimented with color and texture while working out-of-doors.

Amy Kurtz Lansing has skillfully undertaken not only to select pastel works from among hundreds of examples, but to discern their meaning to the artist’s career. This catalogue features a remembrance by the artist’s grandson, painter Nelson H. White, an essay by the curator, and a portfolio of 21 color illustrations.
