Nancy Boas - David Park: A Painter's Life

Renowned art historian Nancy Boas talks about David Park: A Painter's Life ($49.95). Park, a transplanted Bostonian turned ground-breaking West Coast painter, led the way in creating what became known as Bay Area Figurative Art — a daring move at a time when Abstract Expressionism dominated the art world. "An enthralling read." — San Francisco Magazine

Nancy Boas is the author of The Society of Six: California Colorists and a contributor to the exhibition and catalog Facing Eden: 100 Years of Landscape Art in the Bay Area. She was Adjunct Curator of American Paintings at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
