Doylestown, PA: James A. Michener Art Museum, 2009. Softcover. NF but ex-libris from major art museum library with two stickers and blind stamp.. Color-illus. card wraps with orange/white lettering on spine. French flaps. 86 pp. with color plates throughout plus 21 color and bw figures. Catalogue from the exhibition of October 2009 to February 2010. Charles Ward made history in 1935 when his painting, Progress and Industry, was the first New Deal post office mural installed in the country. That program was a natural fit for Ward who once described his art, including modernist landscapes, insightful figurative works, and scenes of laborers both in Bucks County and in Mexico as "paintings for people." Despite the acclaim for his murals, Ward spent his career on more personal subjects in his Carversville, Pennsylvania studio. Organized by the Michener Art Museum and guest curated by David Leopold, this retrospective and catalouge explored for the first time the full range of Ward's work, art that resonates with deep empathy for his fellow man and the land and people he loved. - from the museum web site.
