About this title

Synopsis:

From the back of the book - Hans Kleiber was a man who loved nature above all. His second love was art, and he managed to combine the two in a lifelong romance with the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming. He has left a legacy of superb etchings as testimony to his devotions Emmie Mygatt and Roberta Cheney have written "not so much an account of his life as a glimpse into the experiences which served as background and inspiration for his art." From his own words we learn his joy in the solitude and quiet of the forests, the peacefulness of alpine lakes, the tranquility of unspoiled nature. "Moved as he was by the magnificence of mountains, it is not surprising that so many of his etchings are dominated by mountain scenery," say the authors. "So forceful are the spare lines in his work that the strength and grandeur of mountains are conveyed to all who view his pictures." Throughout his lifetime, Hans never swerved from his belief that man needs contact with nature, that he must feel the earth beneath his feet in order to be really whole. "He watched a thousand sunrises and sunsets," says James Forrest, head of the Art Department at the University of Wyoming, "often orchestrated by honking Canadian geese or formations of noisy mallards or teal; he lay in cover, sketching, as deer, elk, or moose grazed. He understood them and respected them . . . as part of a universal scheme encompassing all things on and of the earth." Much of what he sketched when it was fresh and unspoiled is now endangered. In that sense this book is a timely one. Whatever may happen to his Big Horn country, Hans Kleiber has preserved it at its best and left it for others to enjoy.
