ABOUT THE DVD
This DVD, part of the Maine Masters series, features a visit to the home and studio of the legendary Maine illustrator and artist, Dahlov Ipcar.
A New Englander by birth, Dahlov Ipcar was introduced to Maine by her parents, artists William and Marguerite Zorach, who bought a farm at Robinhood Cove in Georgetown in 1923. Ipcar, whose first solo show took place at the Museum of Modern Art when she was 21, has gained wide recognition through her distinctive stylized paintings and murals of jungle and farm animals, her pioneering work in soft sculpture, and her vividly illustrated books.
Her first childrens book illustrations were for Margaret Wise Brown's The Little Fisherman, originally published in 1945. Since then, she has illustrated more than 30 children's books including My Wonderful Christmas Tree, The Cat at Night and Hardscrabble Harvest.
The Maine Masters series, an ongoing documentary project of the Union of Maine Visual Artists, includes portraits of Robert Hamilton, William Thon, Dahlov Ipcar, Alan Magee, Harold Garde, Olive Pierce, Clark Fitz-Gerald, Lois Dodd and Stephen Pace.
