The Sound of Sleat: A Painter’s Life


The remarkable autobiography of an American artist’s dreams, passions, and work. As an American abstract expressionist painter and early protege of Leo Castelli, Jon Schueler lived and worked among the country’s most gifted artists: Clyfford Still, Mark Rothko, Helen Frankenthaler, Jackson Pollock, Willem De Kooning, Jasper Johns, and many others. Schueler was mysteriously driven to connect nature with a deeply personal passion. In the late 1950s, he travelled for the first time to Mallaig, a town in western Scotland on the Sound of Sleat, where the dramatic landscape inspired his art and continued to influence him throughout his career.
