About this title

Synopsis:

May Stevens' paintings weave themes of familial love and loss, societal ills, and the healing power of nature and the human community. This book surveys the full range of her remarkable lifework, from her early social protest paintings to her recent series of luminous, large-format images of lakes, rivers, and other bodies of water. May Stevens offers an insightful, in-depth look at Stevens' career, drawing on her own recollections and rounded out by informed commentary. Images and text bring to light Stevens' personal history, her humanitarian concerns, and the social context within which her art evolved
