Cornelia Foss : a retrospective by Cornelia Brendel Foss( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cornelia Foss is part of a loosely knit group of American artists often described as "painterly realists", a number of whom, such as Eric Fischl and Fairfield Porter, along with Foss, were captivated by the Hampton light of Long Island's East End. This volume, representing a major survey of Foss's work, includes landscapes, beach scenes, gardens, still-lifes, as well as portraits of writers, composers, fellow artists, family members, and friends. ... This handsomely designed volume, including more than two hundred paintings, offers insightful essays by poet and critic J.D. McClatchy, playwright John Guare, and curator-art critic Karen Wilkin - as well as a foreward by the artist."--
