Lynn Shaler (1955-present) is an American artist known for her color aquatint etchings. Many of her works feature locations in the city of Paris. Early subjects often included objects such as doorknobs, envelopes, theater exits, a pair of shoes. Later and more recent subjects often include architectural details or interior views opening onto an exterior scene. Many of her works also feature a dog, a cat, umbrella(s) and/or a lady in a red/pink coat. The majority of her works are made with multiple plates and many are, at least in part, hand-colored.
Famous quotes containing the word lynn:
“In the quilts I had found good objectshospitable, warm, with soft edges yet resistant, with boundaries yet suggesting a continuous safe expanse, a field that could be bundled, a bundle that could be unfurled, portable equipment, light, washable, long-lasting, colorful, versatile, functional and ornamental, private and universal, mine and thine.”
—Radka Donnell-Vogt, U.S. quiltmaker. As quoted in Lives and Works, by Lynn F. Miller and Sally S. Swenson (1981)
