Thaddeus Mosley : African-American sculptor by David Lewis( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thaddeus "Thad" Mosley is a self-taught African-American sculptor. Earning a living throughout his adult life as a postal worker in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, so that he could support his family by day and work as a sculptor at night, he has evolved an individual and powerful African-American voice. He worked alone, patiently developing a sculptural language absolutely his own, yet traceable to his primary sources of inspiration, the vitality of African art and American jazz on the one hand, and on the other, two twentieth-century artists, the Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi and the Asian-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi." "This short book introduces the life and work of this remarkable man. David Lewis, architect, writer, and painter, has been a friend of the artist for twenty-five years. His narrative is distilled from hours of taped interviews with Thad Mosley, as well as from a deep understanding of his art and influences. Lonnie Graham is a nationally known African-American photographer."--BOOK JACKET

Terry Frost by David Lewis( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the life and work of the painter Terry Frost. It is a rich and diverse mixture of his own thoughts and writings about art and life, the history of his five decades of productive work as a painter, and reflections on the particular qualities of his art. The texts are woven together in a personal narrative by David Lewis, friend of the artist for many years and leading authority on the St Ives artists. They include Frost's own musings, letters and poems as well as essays by the painter Adrian Heath, by David Archer on the prints, Ronnie Duncan on the years in Leeds, and Linda Saunders on the Lorca Portfolio. There is also a photo-essay by Roger Mayne. The art historian Elizabeth Knowles (formerly a curator at the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Tate Gallery) has edited the book which not only documents his works but also presents a vivid picture of Terry Frost as a painter and teacher

The incomplete circle : Eric Atkinson, art and education : an exchange of letters by Eric Atkinson( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The volume takes an unusual form. Instead of essays, it is a spirited exchange of letters between Ricky Atkinson and David Lewis, and an array of English, Canadian and American artists and teacher friends (John Davies, Duncan de Kergommeaux, Sir Terry Frost, George Hainsworth, Stephen Joy, Arlene Kennedy, Norbert Lynton, Colin Phipps, Peter Stead and Fred Steinmetz) which offers a fascinating insight into the creative process at the heart of art education over the past forty years. It is generously illustrated with 200 reproductions (including 25 in colour) of work by Ricky Atkinson (and other comparative material), and will be an indispensable source book for all those concerned with the ferment in art education on both sides of the Atlantic."--BOOK JACKET
