Paintings and Drawings by Isa Dreier

Isa Dreier, Paintings and Drawings is a compilation of one woman's artwork and poetry from the 1930's through the 1980's.The subject matter ranges from women, to classical portraits,landscapes and still lifes done in ink, charcoal, watercolor, oil and acrylics. Excerpts from her studio notes, creative writings and artwork, along with both an art historian's biographical essay and a personal essay by her daughter, give the reader a full-bodied portrait of Isa Dreier. This book provides the reader with insight into the artist and how her life experiences influenced and shaped her paintings and drawings. Throughout her journey, joie de vivre and whimsy permeated a world in which she delicately balanced the roles of wife, mother and artist. As an older woman she painted with enthusiastic diligence and accomplishment until her capacity to work faded into Alzheimers. Her paintings are vibrant, accomplished and delightful to contemplate. Given that most art is done by artists who remain unrecognized and that most of these unrecognized artists are women, this monograph provides a portrait that expands far beyond Isa Dreier's own life story.
