This issue features work in drawing and painting. Rita Foster's magnificent renderings in both white and black charcoal of classically posed figures as well as contemporary athletic figures at rest are both traditionally elegant and contemporarily imaginative. Her work is featured on the cover of this issue. Richard Claraval's charcoal drawings are fluid and etched in fantasy. Lyubomir Naydenov's charcoal and pencil works resemble sculpted marble or granite. Peter Bowles' oils have a tongue in cheek quality suggestive of Norman Rockwell while his close-ups of faces shaving or full figures full frontal are elusive while suggesting erotic thoughts. Dominic Finocchio's paintings and drawings place the figure in landscape or room settings. Ivor Sexton's acrylic paintings are of contemporary subjects in contemporary, at times mystical, settings.
In keeping with the journal's intent to ground the contemporary works with reference to important artists of history this issues features a well-illustrated essay of the enigmatic Henry Scott Tuke, an artist many people in this country may not recognize by name but certainly will recall images of his seascapes and lads at the beach. Another fine edition of a well-established art journal. Grady Harp, May 14
