The Contises were recently the focus of an exhibition at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, and that exhibition was the catalyst for this volume. The author recounts the lives of the two self-taught painters, husband and wife, and discusses their colorful, vital works. His narrative is accompanied by 40 color plates and 80 bandw illustrations, including some historical photographs of Pittsburgh-- which was the artists' home--and of shrines, churches, and villages in the Peloponnese--which forged their outlook. 9.75x9.75" Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
