The Dictionary of Utah Fine Artists
This comprehensive reference dictionary, including some artwork, reveals the exceptional quality and diversity of Utah’s amazing artists through the years.
The Dictionary of Utah Fine Artists, from Aagard to Zwara with artists in between, is compiled and written by Vern G. Swanson, Donna Poulton, Angela Swanson Jones, and Micah Christensen. It details the styles and experiences of over 4,500 fine artists from the sketches of early exploration artists to Robert Smithson’s world-famous Spiral Jetty to the Western images of Minera Teichert. Rich images and color plates bring Utah’s masterpieces to life, and black-and-white photographs take the readers on a journey into the artists’ interior world. This sweeping work highlights the rural and the cosmopolitan, the traditional and the modern, and the concrete and the transcendent that encompass Utah art.
