"In David Park, Painter: Nothing Held Back, Park's younger daughter, writer Helen Park Bigelow, paints a mesmerizing, deeply moving portrait of her father's life and early, difficult death. Park left high school in New England without graduating and came west in order to paint. He married Lydia (Deedie) Newell when he was nineteen and was the father of two by the time he was twenty-two. We are brought into a family rich with moral conviction, ingenuity, smart and gifted friends, music, and art: four complex people guided and inspired by values of integrity. Those same values guided and inspired David Park's painting."--Jacket

"This generously illustrated volume accompanies the first major museum exhibition in more than thirty years devoted to the powerfully expressive work of David Park (1911-1960), best known as the pioneer of Bay Area Figurative Art. A Boston native, Park moved to California at age 17 and spent nearly all of his adult life in the Bay Area. In the immediate postwar years, when Abstract Expressionism was seen as the only relevant style among avant-garde American painters, Park followed suit. In a moment of passion at mid-century, however, he destroyed nearly all of his abstract canvases and began painting pictures, as he called them, in so doing marking the beginning of Bay Area Figurative Art. Park's paintings of the 1950s--featuring both vernacular and classic subjects such as street scenes, musicians, portraits, interiors, and bathers--reveal how the artist harnessed the lessons of Abstract Expressionism to his own ends, with increasingly lush, bold, gestural paint handling and an extraordinary sense of color. In 1958-59 he reached his expressive peak, reveling in the sensuous qualities of paint to create intensely physical, psychologically charged, and deeply felt canvases. This fertile period cut short by illness in 1960, Park transferred his creative energy to other mediums. In the last year of his life, when he could no longer work on canvas, Park produced a thirty-foot-long felt-tip-pen scroll and a vibrant series of gouaches, representing a deliberate and self-conscious final statement. Featuring more than one hundred works of art, 'David Park: A Retrospective' traces the full arc of the artist's career, from his early Social Realist efforts of the 1930s to his figurative paintings of the 1950s and final works on paper. This volume features essays by Janet Bishop on Park's artistic journey; Tara McDowell on the Bay Area Figurative drawing sessions held by Park and his artistic circle; Corey Keller on the portraits that Park and photographer Imogen Cunningham made of each other; Sara Wessen Change on Park's 1960 scroll; and Lee Hallman on Park's 1960 gouaches; as well as an exhibition history and richly illustrated chronology that further illuminate the artist's life and career"--Dust jacket
