Kerouac: Beat Painting | Author: Sandrina Bandera
As well as being the author of novels that defined postwar America and helped launch the counterculture, Jack Kerouac was also a prolific painter and draftsman. But his artistic work - inspired by the artists of the New York School with whom Kerouac socialised in the late 1950s -has remained largely unknown. Most of Kerouac's artworks were inherited by a relative and remained unseen in the author's hometown of Lowell, Massachusetts, for decades. Now, this new publication offers the chance to explore what Kerouac's unique vision looked like in paint and pencil.
Jack Kerouac: Beat Painting features 80 paintings and drawings by Kerouac, most of which have never before been published, shedding a completely new light on the father of the Beat Generation, and showing how he brought the same energy to visual art as he did to all of his other endeavours.
