9780966525335: Where Magic Wears a Red  Hat: The Art of Stanley Murphy

Stanley Murphy painted Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, across a career that spanned more than fifty years and with the exacting eye of a seasoned craftsman and the magical soul of a poet. His images are of the Vineyard's fishermen and selectmen and farmers and tribal elders; its seas and stones and fields and flowers; its fishes and cows and dogs. The Vermeer of the Vineyard, as essayist Karal Ann Marling dubs him in this collection of his portraiture, clung tenaciously to a form and place that was decidedly regional, resolutely American, and doggedly honest. Included are more than thirty-five paintings and drawings of island people.
