Bruce Kurland was an American still-life painter working from the early 1960s until his death in 2013. Born in New York in 1938, Kurland was initially influenced by earlier European practitioners of the still-life genre such as Fabritius, Chardin and Morandi, whose quiet reveries he inflected with a contemporary vision of mortality derived from the visceral imagery of Francis Bacon. Today, his work can be seen as part of a singular strain of twentieth-century North American painting that includes artists such as Walter Murch and Gregory Gillespie.

Kurland infused his paintings with powerful attention to, and a tangible affection for, nature red in tooth and claw, conjuring a little world with which I could do anything I wanted, without losing the illusion. This handsome volume, with its cloth binding and tip-on cover, includes essays by poet Lisa Jarnot, gallerist Victoria Munroe and Chief Curator at the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC, Eliza Rathbone.
