BETTER THAN BEAUTY tells the story behind the work of a highly-original 20th-Century California painter, Jeanne d'Orge. d'Orge was a unique and unconventional figure whose art and poetry are as earthly as they are mystical. Her creative career began in mid-life, after a drastic move. d'Orge left her husband and family (including her daughter, the famed children's book author Virginia Lee Burton) to begin a new life of love and creativity with the young inventor Carl Cherry in Carmel, California. She became a painter and poet of extraordinary vision with profound messages of liberation and authenticity for readers today. Jeanne d'Orge was recognized for many years as an "ancient, honorable citizen" of Carmel. With her second husband, whose invention of the Cherry Blind Rivet revolutionized aircraft building in the 1940's, she established the Carl Cherry Foundation, now the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts. Jane Wilgress' perceptive study revives the artist's remarkable life in a beautiful, full-color volume filler with d'Orge's independent, courageous spirit. Wilgress conducted research in California, England, and Scotland to capture the artist's spirit and work. Archivist, librarian and student of the arts, Wilgress for ten years was Curator and Director of the Carl Cherry Foundation and Gallery, home to d'Orge's works.
