Beth Van Hoesen 2018 Wall Calendar
“My criteria for the original print is that it looks as if it could not be done in any other way.”
—Beth Van Hoesen
For more than five decades, California printmaker Beth Van Hoesen (1926–2010) distinguished herself as a close observer of the world around her. She drew from life, believing that each leaf in front of her contained such individuality that working from memory or photographs would never do. She is celebrated for her works on a variety of subjects—including landscapes, life drawings, and a vast array of undeniably adorable creatures—but her arrangements of flowers on paper are among her most delicate and elegant.
Van Hoesen’s artistic approach was shaped by her philosophy that an artist needs to see not only with the eyes but also with the heart. More of her work is featured in Beth Van Hoesen: Fauna & Flora
