The Art of Gaell Lindstrom


The Art of Gaell Lindstrom

from 45.00

Chatwin is proud to release the first major survey of the life and work of Utah artist Gaell Lindstrom (1919-2009). Lindstrom was an artist whose search for inspiration took him from portraying the people and places of his native Utah and the American West to Mexico, Guatemala, Italy, Morocco, and China.

Deeply grounded in region and faith, Lindstrom’s work testifies to his dedication to craft, which was the foundation for his long and influential career as an art professor. The 130 illustrations, including 100 color plates, showcase Lindstrom’s mastery of form and texture, and his ability to capture the stillness of the moment in landscapes and urbanscapes.

The texts are by Dr. James Swensen of Brigham Young University, and the artist’s son, Dr. Braden Lindstrom of Dixie State University. They examine the arc of Lindstrom’s work as a painter and photographer, his relationships with other Utah artists, his artistic influences, teaching philosophy, travels and study abroad (particularly in China and with Chinese artists), and family life and background.

This beautiful art book will be issued in both paperback and a special hardcover limited edition. Although it will not be available to the public until Fall, 2019, advance subscribers who pre-order now will receive their copies in early July.

In addition to the larger-format (10 x 8 inch), full color art book, Chatwin will be issuing Gaell Lindstrom, My Father by Braden Lindstrom. This very personal biography is richly textured with details of the artist’s life, work, and family. Learn more.
