Last night at class we did not peruse any new art books.  Instead there was a buzz in the room about the recent publication on David Park  While no one had the book yet we did discuss who had it on order and when they would  let us see it.  This monograph David Park, Painter: Nothing Held Back is written by his daughter Helen Park Bigelow.  With the ability to study his work for decades Park Bigelow chronicles his prolific yet brief career as an artist and integral member of the Bay Area Figurative painters and features over 100 of his paintings.  As an owner of the book Bay Area Figurative Art 1950-1965 and others of Diebenkorn, Bischoff, and Oliveira this too will just have to be an addition to my fan club of immensely gifted artists who created an inspiring art movement.
