The John Marin Collection

The Colby College Museum of Art is fortunate enough to have a collection of renowned artist John Marin's best work. The collection, one of the most comprehensive and renowned in the country, is the brain child of John Marin Jr. and Norma B. Marin, who were determined to give a retrospective collection of Marin's work to an academic museum in Maine, the state he so loved. Now you can enjoy the works, from etchings to oil to watercolor, in a beautiful book from Colby College, The John Marin Collection at the Colby College Museum of Art.

Alex Katz: Collages Alex Katz: Collages
Cohen, David; Corwin, Sharin; and Katz, Alex
Alex Katz: Collages is the catalogue raisonné of Katz's early collages, spanning the period from 1954 to 1960. It presents 85 color plates with complete catalogue entries and an essay by Katz scholar David Cohen, critic for the New York Sun, publisher and editor of and curator at the New York Studio School. Cohen's essay argues that the collages are critical to an understanding of Katz's mature work and occupy a significant place within a history of Modernism. In these seminal works, Katz was already developing his unique artistic voice--a vocabulary of elemental forms, aesthetic efficiency and flat color.
