This diverse and masterful Men and Angels is the single largest collection of James Christensen’s paintings ever published. This comprehensive volume brims with over 300 paintings (including many favored classics), more than 100 unpublished treasures and a selection of whimsical and inspired sketches from his private sketchbooks. From marriage to spiritual devotion to daily pet care, no object seems mundane after it has met Christensen’s inventive brush. Applying his celebrated eye for the fantastic to people, landscapes and creatures (both real and imagined), Christensen has created a rich and strangely familiar world that will take a lifetime to explore. Each image presents a unique glimpse into the mind of the artist and holds up a mirror to the universal trials and triumphs of our own lives. Christensen’s career as an artist and art professor has equipped him to be a great communicator, or perhaps the fact that he is especially articulate for a visual artist has made him a master teacher. His wide-ranging commentary is as engaging as his art. The range of subject matter and style are a testament to the artist’s imagination, creativity and understanding of art history. His drive to connect with the world weaves through his work like a ribbon, over mermaids, under saints and around hunchbacks. The images communicate on a level that is as personal as it is universal.
