Pedro de Lemos, Lasting Impressions
As a practicing artist, art educator, and decades-long editor of SchoolArts magazine, Pedro de Lemos was a seminal figure in the field of art education. His simplified methods for printmaking were the accepted curriculum in art classes across North America and in Great Britain. In addition to sponsoring several prominent art organizations, de Lemos was instrumental in reviving American Indian arts through new indigenous schools and popular exhibitions.
More than a personal history, this book offers thought-provoking ideas and stunning imagery that illustrate the importance of multiculturalism and craft in art, subjects as relevant to today’s practitioners as they were a century ago. With text by de Lemos scholar Robert Edwards and stunning full-color reproductions of de Lemos’ works on paper, this volume is both a comprehensive history and visual record of a true Renaissance man. 112 pages, softcover
