Summary

Robert McCloskey is one of the most beloved American children's authors of all time. His eight books, including Make Way for Ducklings, One Morning in Maine, Time of Wonder and Burt Dow Deep-Water Man are 20th century icons, winning two Caldecott Medals and two Caldecott Honors for BooksIn Jane McCloskey's previous book about her father, Robert McCloskey: A Private Life in Words and Pictures she told the story of her family in her words and her father's pictures.But very few people knew that Robert Bob McCloskey was an amazingly prolific painter and illustrator, not only in his iconic but he also painted and sketched wherever he was: on his island home in Maine, in St. Thomas, Mexico, New York and Europe.Few people have seen much of the art in this book. Bob continually painted and drew for his own pleasure and the pleasure of his family. Some themes will be familiar to readers of his books: his daughters, Penobscot Bay in Maine, boats, seagulls, island life. Some will be less familiar: sensitive portraits of youthful friends, lively studies of Greece and Europe, affectionate sketches of pets, luminous figures of men, women and children in Mexico and the Caribbean.Robert McCloskey: Art and Illustration brings fresh insights to the artist's work and life.
