The paintings and sculptures of maverick Texas artist David Bates combine exquisite technique with a deep understanding of American modernist traditions, resulting in a body of work that is at once sophisticated, soulful, and accessible. From his lush early paintings of the Arkansas nature conservancy Grassy Lake and the Texas Gulf Coast, to his figural reliefs and sculptures created at a bronze-casting foundry in Washington, to his most recent paintings depicting survivors of Hurricane Katrina, this catalogue provides an in-depth look at the life and work of a unique and significant American artist and serves as the first full monograph of Bates's work. This book is published in association with the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, which holds many of his works in its permanent collection, and features more than 160 colour reproductions of the artist's work.
