Grace Hartigan: A Painter's World Hardcover – November 15, 1990. by. Robert Saltonstall Mattison (Author). From her joyous, extroverted 1950s abstractions, she jumped to procreative and psychosexual imagery in the '60s. During the next decade, coping with alcoholism, her husband's mental illness and her attempted suicide, she did chaotic paintings whose split images and obsessively crowded surfaces dealt with issues of life and death, sin and salvation.

Grace Hartigan (March 28, 1922 – November 15, 2008) was a second-generation American Abstract Expressionist painter and a member of the New York School. Born in Newark, New Jersey, of Irish-English descent, Hartigan was the oldest of four children. Encouraging her romantic fantasies, her father and grandmother often sang songs and told her stories. Her mother, however, disapproved. At nineteen she was married to Robert Jachens

Her art was marked by a willingness to employ a variety of styles in a modernist idiom, to go back and forth from art-historical references to pop-culture references to autobiographical material, said Robert Saltonstall Mattison, the author of Grace Hartigan: A Painter’s World (1990). In 1959 she married Robert Keene, a gallery owner, whom she divorced a year later. In 1960 she married Winston Price, an epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins University who collected modern art and had bought one of her paintings.

I feel that we are living a very fragmented life; the whole world - you too. So I perceive the world in fragments. It is somewhat like being on a very fast train and getting glimpses of things in strange scales as you pass by. A person can be very, very tiny.

Not only gorgeous to look at, but a definitive work on this artist. Includes fine color reproductions, not only of her work as an abstract expressionist in the 1950's, but work of the next 35 years. We see the early works that brought her fame and those that followed. Hartigan's favorite statement made, originally by Marilyn Monroe, "Fame may go by - and so long, I've had you." becomes the chapter title "Fame May Go By: the 1960s."
The early work evolved into less popular paintings, heavy with symbolism. The reader is led through the years. We see her working process. Constantly painting, she didn't hesitate to use an historical painting as a point of departure. Her paintings, and their sources are shown side-by-side, whether the source be a classic by Caravaggio or a photo Hartigan had a photographer take of a group in bizarre costumes as for a wedding.
Illustrations (mostly color, some black and white) show the evolution of the painter as she left fame behind, but continued as an artist who answered only to herself, refusing to bow to popular demands.
It's always interesting, in looking at the work of an acknowledged artist, to learn about the life, too. We're party to her wild younger years and love affairs - including name artists - and to her final enduring marriage, a great love that brought happiness, contentment, ending only with her husband's death after a very long illness.
For an artist this book is a source of encouragement, for an art lover it is a work of art in itself.

This is an essential book for anyone desiring a complete look at the survivors of the New York School. Grace Hartigan emerges as a painter of individual vision and enduring originality. The author explores the interweave of life and art in a way that brilliantly illuminates each chapter of Hartigan's career as assessed in 1990. The color reproductions are stunning and the documentary photographs open the painter's world to the reader. With the artist's sad passing earlier this month, the demand for literature on Hartigan will likely increase, as the art world seeks a new assessment of her stature. Highly recommended.
