‘An Artist in Venice’ by Adam Van Doren

Continue reading below

Venice, a city that has captured the imagination of artists and writers over the centuries, made a painter out of Adam Van Doren, who arrived in 1987 to study its architecture. Van Doren, a master of light and grandson of the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Mark Van Doren, is an amiable companion as he goes about exploring the city, sketchbook and notebook in hand. “An Artist in Venice” (Godine) succeeds as a memoir of discovery and a portfolio of paintings and sketches. His dreamy, richly hued works, none more than six and a half inches tall, are beautifully reproduced.
