About this Item

First Edition, First Printing with full number line. INSCRIBED BY KINSTLER on the title page in black ink: "For Susan Henshaw Jones - / and the Museum of the City of New York - / with appreciation to you both! / With friendship and affection / x Ray Kinstler / 2005." (The "W" in With is slightly smudged.) NEAR FINE in VERY GOOD dust jacket. A crisp, clean copy, tightly bound in black hardcover, gilt titled on spine. Penciled marginal notation and underlines on one page, with a few small erasures evident on 3 other pages, slight residue from sticky note in margin of one page, otherwise pages internally fine. Cover is fresh, unworn. Color illustrated jacket is clean and complete, slightly shelf worn with slight scuffing to rear panel, shallow creasing along top edge, and a small round dent to the rear panel, not affecting any image. Jacket is in a new clear archival protector. Binding and hinges firm, intact and straight. Kinstler is best known as one of America's foremost portraitists but his talent extends beyond the portrait genre. He was a "Golden Age" comic book illustrator and is a superb figure painter and landscape artist. A magnificent tribute to his career, including many color reproductions of his works as well as color photos of the artist at work in his studio. In Kinstler's own words he describes his life and creative career as an illustrator. 10-1/4 x 12-3/4"; 156 pages Size: 4to. Bookseller Inventory # 004625

About this title


For over 60 years, American National Treasure Everett Raymond Kinstler has been upholding the rich tradition of narrative painting that extends back to the easels of the greatest American Academicians. We are proud to announce that this book includes many of his masterpieces and iconic works that are a true legacy of our times. But these pages are more than a showcase of exceptional art from a living master, they are a testament to Kinstler’s passion for art and its power to make a difference. · Throughout the text, artist readers will identify with Kinstler’s dreams, goals, challenges, insecurities and triumphs. · Kinstler recounts his experiences as a freelancer painting covers and illustrations. · He tells about the great times he had creating the Zorro comic books. · Read about his humorous episodes and interactions with important and flamboyant figures, like Salvador Dali. · Enjoy Kinstler’s descriptions of painting American Presidents and their First Ladies. · Be privy to previous images, photographs and letters from Kinstler’s archives Louis A. Zona, Director of the Butler Institute of American Art, said, “Kinstler’s landscapes, interiors, figurative work and still lifes rival any work past or present in those genres. If art intensifies life or, as St. Augustine said, ‘to sing is to pray twice,’ then Ray Kinstler’s canvases are truly painted prayers which pay homage to the astonishing beauty in God’s universe.”
