Synopsis: Painter Kate Javens' Named For series is a collection of creatures--moths, horses, birds, fish--that are named for historical Americans. About Andrew Furuseth, a seaman from the early 1900s who was threatened with a jail sentence for a labor injunction, Javens has written, "When I saw a Dorothea Lange portrait of this beautiful man, I was struck by the crow-ness of his visage. A year-and-a-half after, I found a dead crow on the ground, still warm. I bent over him and said, 'Hello Andrew.'" These animals, according to a recent press release, "...represent, to Javens, an altogether admirable altruism and social activism that deserve to be commemorated." This beautifully produced hardbound publication has a foil embossed linen cover and a full color dust jacket. It includes images from Javens' recent works, as well as earlier series' and her rarely seen studio photography.

About the Author: "Mia Fineman is a writer and curator in New York. She is the author of When Elephants Paint: The Quest of Two Russian Artists to Save the Elephants of Thailand and has contributed essays to monographs on Walker Evans, Richard Avedon, Gabriel Orozco, Sean Scully, and others. Her writing on art appears regularly in the New York Times and Slate."
