The Growth of an American Artist by Harry Wickey

The Growth of an American Artist

Email this review


Fifth in the series of native artists, this is the autobiography of illustrator, who tells in hearty fashion of the metamorphosis of himself . From a boyhood in (Stryker), through discoveries of music, of art, of people. Ways, of earning a living and lessons, and the birth of his ideas and principles. A Sugge Fellowship gave him some repose; his interest in sculpture has a chance to develop. Nice feeling in the handling of this story -- and excellent presentation of his work, with explanations of the purpose, problem, execution, together with his formulated ideas on art.
