Synopsis: This coffee-table art book presents more than 50 bold quilts collected by Scott Heffley dating back 122 years. A tribute to their soulful beauty, the book shows traditional quilts next to their improvisational cousins, as well as African textiles that demonstrate similarities to this American art. Also included are ways to examine quilts, fabric dating, and the importance of recording the history of these quilts. Heffley offers insightful aesthetic observations as well, an outgrowth of his work restoring masterpieces at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City.
About the Author: Scott Heffley began collecting African-American quilts 20 years ago. His fascination with American folk art and textiles led him into this uncharted territory long before the current popularity of these quilts. When not pursuing his avocation of collecting, Scott restores paintings at the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri. He uses his experience of working on paintings by such masters as Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Sargent when he looks at quilts and discusses their color relationships, artistic merit and aesthetics. He loves to immerse himself in the beauty and history of objects, whether at the museum, in antique markets or at home. Scott graduated from Bucknell University in Pennsylvania with degrees in chemical engineering, chemistry and studio art. His conservation graduate degree is from the Cooperstown Graduate Program in New York.
