À propos du livre
“Lewandowski-Lois Paints Machines” is a mesmerizing memoir of his living with his wife, Rosemary Lewandowski-Lois, who appeared “out of the blue” in her first solo show in 1967 to challenge Leger with great critical acclaim. John Canaday, the New York Times art critic, said, “Mrs. Lois’ paintings make it seem that Leger emasculated machinery by changing it.” All the other prominent art reviewers also featured her “humanistic” machines in their magazines.
This intimate, true story of her development as a revolutionary artist is enriched by the inclusion of her dynamic portraits of people, imaginative Greek mythology and the children she loves. Each page is alive with beauty, wit, and power.
And George and Rosemary will make you fall in love with Fire Island!
