Riassunto:

Landscape Artist of the Canyon Country

Winner of the 2016 Evans Handcart Award

While this beautiful book showcases the fabulous artwork of renowned Utah landscape artist Jimmie Jones, it also delves into his history, motivation, education, and progression as an artist.

The art presented in this book begins from Jones’ childhood, crayon colorings saved by his mother, through his portrait period, including works from the fourteen winters Jones lived in San Blas, Mexico, to images from the years he spent painting various views of the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, and the other exquisite canyons of southern Utah. The Art and Life of Jimmie Jones will be a valued addition to any art lover’s book collection.

JAMES M. ATON is a professor of English at Southern Utah University in Cedar City, Utah. He is the author of John Wesley Powell and Jim Jones: The San Blas Years and the coauthor of River Flowing from the Sunrise: An Environmental History of the Lower San Juan and The River Knows Everything: Desolation Canyon and the Green.

From the Inside Flap:

This beautiful book showcases the fabulous artwork of renowned Utah landscape artist Jimmie Jones. It also delves into his history, motivation, education, and growth as an artist. Author James M. Aton, through his meticulous research and writing, weaves an interesting and in-depth narrative of Jones’ life, accented with archival photographs, to accompany a detailed description of numerous paintings. The art presented in this book begins from Jones’ childhood, crayon colorings saved by his mother, through his figure and portrait period, including works from the twelve winters Jones lived in San Blas, Mexico, to images from the years he spent painting various views of the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, and the other exquisite canyons of southern Utah. No artistic period in Jones’ life is left unexplored or undocumented.

Jones’ dying wish was to leave a legacy of inspiration for future artists. He donated many of his best works to Southern Utah University, his hometown college, along with his finely crafted home to help fund the creation of a fine arts museum. The artwork displayed there, his and that of many other artists, will serve to feed the dreams of young painters, sketchers, and sculptors for generations to come. The Art and Life of Jimmie Jones is a valued addition to any art lover’s book collection and will provide inspiration and motivation for any artist, no matter what level or ability.
