Product Description:

Described on the back of the biography as a "reclusive naturalist", Walter Anderson spent most of his time exploring and painting nature. Though he created many forms of art throughout his life, his talent wasn't fully recognized until after his death.

Publisher Description:

In a beautifully crafted biography, Hester Bass and Caldecott Honor winner E. B. Lewis pay homage to the most famous American artist youve never heard of. Reclusive nature-lover Walter Anderson spent weeks at a time on an uninhabited island, sketching and painting the natural surroundings and animals to create some of his most brilliant watercolors, which he kept hidden during his lifetime.

Category Description for Candlewick Biographies:

These are not run-of-the-mill biographies! One features Walter Anderson, whose watercolors were mostly discovered posthumously, and is described as perhaps the "most famous artist you've never heard of." And then there's the unique "biography" of the Statue of Liberty! Each one of these books has won awards including A Parent's Choice Gold Winner and an Orbis Picture Award. 6"x9" 42 pp, sc. ~ Ruth
