DeWitt Hardy: Master of Watercolor




Hardcover Catalogue from the 2019 exhibition at Bates College Museum of Art featuring an essay by Robert Flynn Johnson and contributions by Pat Hardy, Richard Johnson, Lincoln Perry and Deirdre B. Williams.

“DeWitt Hardy [1940-2017] was an accomplished draftsman and printmaker but his watercolors were his greatest achievement. Like Andrew Wyeth who made Chadds Ford Pennsylvania and Cushing, Maine the predominant subjects of his art, so DeWitt Hardy fashioned the coast of southern Maine, its interior woods and fields, houses and factories, and its denizens, into the subjects of his watercolors. Hardy incisively observed a Maine after the tourists had left. In complex and original compositions, Hardy shunned the predictable picturesque in favor of harsh but often beautiful realities.” – Bates College Museum of Art
