The little-known Jamaican landscapes of Barkley L. Hendricks, in a handsome, affordable format

Barkley L. Hendricks (1945-2017) was originally a student of landscape painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in the late 1960s, where he also discovered a love for photography. However, it was only in the 1980s that he decided to veer away from making the large figurative paintings that had become his trademark style in favor of outdoor landscape painting. For the next two decades, during vacations to Jamaica, he would dedicate himself to painting views of the country on oval, circular and lunette (half-moon) forms. This publication, which presents for the first time a selection of these landscape works, is enriched with a contribution by art critic, art historian and scholar Barry Schwabsky. It is the second volume in Skira and Jack Shainman Gallery's comprehensive five-volume publication project on Hendricks.
