Brian H. Peterson, with an essay by Tom Wolf
For some painters a single way of working can last a lifetime. Rosen began his creative career as a highly successful landscape painter, prominently associated with the impressionist art colony centered in New Hope, Pennsylvania. In his late thirties and early forties, Rosen became dissatisfied with the landscape style, and under the influence of modernist ideas his work changed radically. Form Radiating Life is an examination of the life and work of Charles Rosen, studying both phases of his career and featuring paintings from major museum and private collections that demonstrate this unusual range of styles. Approx. 200 pages in length and lavishly illustrated with 183 color images, this publication represents the oeuvre of an artist not only of prodigious talent and vision but also of tremendous sensitivity and imagination. Authored by the Michener's Senior Curator Brian H. Peterson, the book is co-published by the Michener Art Museum and the University of Pennsylvania Press.
