The Edward E. Boccia Artist Trust is delighted to announce we have selected Scheidegger & Spiess, one of Switzerland’s leading publishers for art, photography, and architecture for our upcoming monograph EDWARD E BOCCIA -AN AMERICAN ARTIST. This book is edited and written by Rosa JH Berland with contributions by Dr. Alice Boccia and CC Marsh.

It shall be the first critical full length study of the artist’s work and will serve as the authority on an important American artist while engaging in a more general discussion of hierarchies of style and genre within American twentieth century art.

The book will showcase photographs of never before seen artwork, reveal the innermost workings of the artist’s mind and technique and present a picture of  creativity in mid century to contemporary America.  Publication date is 2019-2020. We are currently in our editing phase and final fundraising efforts.

 

We welcome support of any kind to help us fund the publication of this innovative book, a first of its kind only possible through the patronage of our friends, family and colleagues. Please visit our donation page at Fractured Atlas, donations are tax deductible as per IRS regulations.
