Synopsis

The paintings of Walton Ford (born 1960) combine draftsmanship with layers of allegorical and lyrical symbolism. "It's as if John James Audubon had been visited by the spirit of Hieronymous Bosch" is how one critic has described the unsettling impact of Ford's work, with their sometimes violent imagery and their trenchant political and social commentary on history, colonialism and the precarious relationship between man and animal. This volume provides an overview of Ford's paintings. Printed to coincide with a Ford exhibition at the Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York, the book includes an essay by screenwriter Steven Katz and an interview with the artist by Dodie Kazanjian.

A gorgeous book about a brilliant painter 20. Oktober 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"Tigers of Wrath, Horses of Instruction" (the title is from William Blake) is the first monograph of the work of Walton Ford, a contemporary, New York-born painter whose enormous, Audobon-inspired watercolors are among the most beautiful, most thoughtful, and most disturbing works produced today. His often baffling work, examining global culture clashes told through fantastically-rendered paintings of exotic birds and animals, is very well explicated in a scholarly introductory essay by Steven Katz and a useful interview with the artist conducted by Dodie Kazanjian. All in all, this is probably the most gorgeous book you'll see this year.

Brilliant and Important Contemporary American Artist 25. September 2002
Von Duncan A. Chapman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Walton Ford's watercolors are among the most beautiful offered by any contemporary artist today. The context of each work is intelligent, thoughtful and imaginative while the execution of each work is brilliant. The book's release is in conjunction with a major exhibition of recent work by Walton Ford at the Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York City in October 2002. Serious art collectors, museum curators and art lovers should purchase a copy of the book for their libraries: the book is certain to become a collectors item.

For Artbook Collectors Who Are Really Into Ford's Work 27. Juni 2014
Von C. K. Lidster - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Unless you collect Art monographs and Walton Ford is among your favorites, there is really little reason to buy this book. It is being sold for ridiculously high prices (I paid $220.00 for a copy that was well-used, listed as 'Very Good' when it barely qualified as 'Good' condition), and every single painting inside has been collected in Taschen's excellent Ford retrospective, the massive 'Pancha Tantra'. It does include an essay or two, written material that 'Pancha Tantra' doesn't bother with. And it is a handsome little volume, released by 'Harry N. Abrams', one of the more prolific and long-established publishers known for producing high-quality monographs, who elected to go with a landscape format. But this is not the volume I go to to examine Walton Fords' large-scale watercolors; in order to read the 19th Century-style calligraphy that adorns the margins like Audubons' preparatory paintings for the prints in Birds of America, you need the 12" x 15" format of 'Pancha Tantra'.

Amazing! 21. Februar 2006
Von Matilda Luk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Ford is a master painter -- although I imagine one must see his work in person to appreciate the fabulous detail -- and the book is a great and affordable way to have his work in the house.

Like Audubon combined with Kafka 16. September 2006
Von C. Collins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Walton Ford's paintings are hauntingly beautiful. The first time I began to see reproductions of Ford's work in Art in America, I knew we had a bold new talent to challenge our sensibilities.

The large watercolors; enhanced with colored inks, pencil, and gouache, are superb. The play with the naturalistic sensibilities of John James Audubon's nature paintings, but always have a dark, sinister, commentary hidden in the sub-text.

The paintings are of incredible beauty, masterfully drawn, formal and structured, pristine and realistic. Yet odd forces of death, violence, and pain lurk just below the surface. The compositions and the tight use of the watercolor and ink medium create a discomfort and tension that places the works fully in the 21st century. They are Audubon combined with Kafka. The beauty draws you in and then you get caught by the sub-text, the evil little traps hidden in each work.

The monograph is full of art, Ford being a highly prolific painter. At least 70 paintings are represented in full color. You will not be diappointed.
