Last Light: How Six Great American Artists Made Old Age a Time of Triumph
One of the nation’s top art critics shows how six great artists made old age a time of triumph by producing the greatest work of their long careers—and, in some cases, changing the course of art history.
Ordinarily, we think of young artists as the bomb throwers. Monet and Renoir were still in their twenties when they embarked on what would soon be called Impressionism, as were Picasso and Braque when they ventured into Cubism. But your sixties and the decades that follow can be no less liberating if they too bring the confidence to attempt new things. Young artists may experiment because they have nothing to lose; older ones because they have nothing to fear. With their legacies secure, they’re free to reinvent themselves…sometimes with revolutionary results. Hardcover, 384 pages.
