The Watercolors of Harlan Hubbard

Harlan Hubbard (1900-1988), Kentucky writer, environmentalist and artist, spent many years trying to rediscover and revive the vanishing language of landscape in his watercolor paintings. Known for their sense of drifting movement and their depiction of the simple way of life for which Hubbard was known, they inexplicably remain his least-studied artworks, despite being some of the best evidence of Hubbard's place in the history of landscape painting.

The Watercolors of Harlan Hubbard not only argues Hubbard's place in the art historical canon, but also highlight and analyze the artist's own voice. In this unique collection, more than 200 watercolors are interspersed with anecdotes to present a personal meditation on the influence that Hubbard's work has had on the lives of those who knew him.

Reviews

"The Watercolors of Harlan Hubbard honors Hubbard's legacy as an accomplished and celebrated painter of his beloved Ohio River country. Through these lesser-known watercolors, and in entries from Hubbard's journals, we recognize his steadfast loyalty to painting landscapes that are, in his words, 'as real as the rain and stones.' This great gift, newly arrived from Jessica Whitehead and Bill and Flo Caddell, is a grand collection from one of our most treasured artists."—Ron Ellis, editor of Of Woods and Waters: A Kentucky Outdoors Reader

"Harlan Hubbard painted a world blazing with colors and charged with energy, as if the movement of his brush were powered by the soil, waters, and sky. Even human artifacts, from barns to riverboats, shimmer with vitality, as if they might burst into bloom, offering those of us who live here in the Ohio Valley a dynamic and cherishing vision of our home ground."—Scott Russell Sanders, author of The Way of Imagination

"Harlan Hubbard was a nature mystic, an artist who rambled through the world "taking notes" in watercolor of the sights that spoke to him.  To me, having lived so long among Harlan's framed, finished oils and acrylics, the images in this much-anticipated book come as a bright shock:  immediately recognizable as Harlan's work, yet with a vividness and energy that capture the very instants of his inspiration."—Judith Moffett, author of Tarzan in Kentucky
