Brush's 30-year career includes early painting exhibitions, a period of seclusion and study, and intense immersion into the mysteries of gold. The resulting works include delicate granulated-gold domes in the traditions of the ancient goldsmiths, jewel-encrusted objects of virtue and fantasy, and gold and steel sculptures, some only a few inches high. Mostly unseen until now, these unique works are presented in 175 glorious color photographs made especially for this monograph.
Also reproduced are paintings and drawings, as well as photographs of Brush's private studio. Insightful essays, often incorporating Brush's own words, trace the artist's remarkable journey of visual discovery and enlightenment, and reveal a creative genius removed from the everyday.
A retrospective exhibition of Brush's work will be on view at the Renwick Gallery of the National Museum of American Art, Washington, D.C., in the fall of 1998.
