Sara Midda's South of France: A Sketch Book
Sara Midda's South of France
A Sketch Book
Hardcover      ISBN: 0894807633
From Sara Midda, the artist whose first book, In and Out of the Garden, evoked all the pleasures of the English garden and received international acclaim, comes a wondrous sketchbook from a year spent in the South of France--an artist's personal journal carried everywhere and crammed with drawings and notions and thoughts surprising and whimsical. Sara Midda captures the land, the people, the shimmering air--the whole feeling of Provence and the Cote d' Azur and the spell they cast over even those who haven't been. Describing her own work, Sara Midda says: "It is an evocation, an interpretation of the everyday. It is making discoveries about ordinary things. It is not merely landscapes and buildings, but the artifacts that are the bricks and mortar of a culture." The entire volume is printed on uncoated stock to convey the feeling and texture of an artist's sketchbook.
