For over 35 years, New York-based artist Richard Haas has chronicled the monumental beauty of our urban landscape. From New York to Galveston, Munich to Bilbao, his elegant images display a more-than-sensitive appreciation for his architectural subjects and the surroundings of which they are so much a part. Trained in studio art and art education at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Haas embarked up his life’s work: the portrayal of “architecture…in its unique urban setting…cities as jewels and rough gems…icons and urban amenities.”
The Prints of Richard Haas includes an appreciation and foreword by Will Barnet and Philip Pearlstein; Marilyn Kushner’s illustrated essay exploring Haas’ wide-ranging four-decade career; a detailed inventory of 153 prints created between 1970 and 2004; a comprehensive chronology; exhibition and collections histories; a selected reference biography, and indices.
