Modernist artist Elsie Driggs (1898-1992) is best known for her precisionist paintings of the 1920s that take their subject matter from the world of industry and engineering, although her long career embraced a diverse range of styles and subject matter. While previous scholarship has focused on the precise craftsmanship, wit, and delicate beauty of her work, Elsie Driggs: The Quick and the Classical explores the ideological and emotional richness of the body of work she produced from 1918 through the late 1980s. The book, which is co-published by the University of Pennsylvania Press and the Michener Art Museum and accompanies the Michener's 2008 retrospective exhibition, examines the artist's work in depth and includes her own writings as well as critical responses to her work. Hardcover, 160 pages, 65 color plates, and 56 illlustrations.
