" Hubbard was a gifted writer, but during his lifetime he was better known as an artist. He painted in both oil and watercolor, but over the years he also cut and printed approximately 170 woodcuts. It was in this medium that his potential as an artist was most full realized."


Kentucky artist Harlan Hubbard created oil paintings, watercolors, and line drawings, but some of his finest work is found in the woodblock prints he produced throughout his life. Whether portraying the grandeur of the Ohio River, the classic lines of a steamboat, or the places and actions of his own life, Hubbard filters his subject through the eye of an artist and the mind of a philosopher. Here is a collection of nearly half of Hubbard's known woodcuts. Many have never been published before. Paired with them are quotations from the artist's journals and books. Authors: Harlan Hubbard, Bill Caddell, and Wendell Berry. Hardcover, 8.5 x 8.5". 192 pages.
