Thornton Dial (1928-2016), one of the most important artists in the American South, came to prominence in the late 1980s and was celebrated internationally for his large construction pieces and mixed-media paintings. It was only later, in response to a reviewer's negative comment on his artistic ability, that he began to work on paper. And it was not until recently that these drawings have received the acclaim they deserve. This volume, edited by Bernard L. Herman, offers the first sustained critical attention to Dial's works on paper. Other contributors include Glenn Hinson, Juan Logan, Colin Rhodes, and Cara Zimmerman. Hardcover: 224 pages. Publisher: The University of North Carolina Press; 1 edition (March 1, 2012). Measures: 7 1/2" x 1" x 10".
