Men and Angels: The Art of James C. Christensen
The first collection of Christensen’s paintings in fifteen years, Men
and Angels includes the artist’s work from his book illustration in
the 1970s to his stunning and award-winning paintings today. From
marriage to spiritual devotion to daily pet care, no subject is mundane once it has met Christensen’s inventive brush. Applying his award-winning eye for the fantastic to people, animals and landscapes
alike, Christensen has created a rich and strangely familiar world that will take a lifetime to explore.
His dual career as artist and educator has equipped him to be a great communicator, and that drive to communicate weaves through the images like a ribbon, over mermaids, under saints and around hunchbacks. This masterful body of work, represented in over 300 paintings and 256 pages, will be treasured by collectors, educators and art lovers.
