By Anne Truitt,Audrey Niffenegger

All 3 of Anne Truitt’s artist’s journals in a single e-volume, the illuminating, inspiring list of a woman’s reconciliation of the decision of artistic paintings with the calls for of day-by-day life—with a brand new creation by means of Audrey Niffenegger.

Anne Truitt stored a magazine all through her grownup existence, from her early years as one of many infrequent, celebrated girls artists within the early 60s, via her midlife as a longtime artist, and into older age whilst she used to be, for a time, the director of Yaddo, the optimal artists’ retreat in Saratoga. She used to be continually a deep, astute reader, and a girl who grappled with a number issues—moral, highbrow, sensual, emotional, and religious. whereas operating intensely on her paintings, she watches her personal daughters trip into marriage and motherhood, meditates on feedback and solitude, and struggles to discover a stability in existence. “Balance now not balance is the resource of security,” she says. Anne Truitt re-creates a existence within which household actions and the desires of kids and acquaintances are continually juxtaposed opposed to the realm of colour and summary geometry to which she is drawn in her art.
