The Art of Alice and Martin Provensen
The beloved work of Alice and Martin Provensen is explored in this new tome which includes hitherto unseen paintings, drawings, travel sketchbooks, photographs, quotes, speeches and possessions from their archive. Karen Provensen Mitchell, the Provensens’ daughter, speaks about her parents’ lives and work in a lovely, insightful interview, and editor Robert Gottlieb and book historian Leonard Marcus offer essays on memories of the pair and their impact on midcentury children’s literature and beyond. For those who treasure the Provensens’ charming and whimsical art, don’t miss this one.
The Art of Alice and Martin Provensen was published by Chronicle Chroma.
