In his sixty-two years Walter Anderson was stupendously productive. He created much of his art in obscurity, and only after his death in 1965 did the magnitude of his labors and genius come to light.
His works teem in the thousands and take many forms - watercolors, oil paintings, drawings, block prints, figurines, pottery, and murals. He produced more than ten thousand pen-and-ink illustrations, as well as poems, stories, journals, and letters.
Bringing together more than 175 full-color images, including works never before shown to the public, this catalogue places Anderson in the context of his peers in twentieth-century American art and portrays him as both a major artist and a renaissance man.
