Lois Dodd, one of this country’s most honored and respected artists, first came to Maine in the 1950s, when she spent a summer at the Skowhegan School after graduating from Cooper Union. Her work revolves around landscape in all seasons. It condenses in winter to line, as in this piece, blooming in summer into swaths of color and populated with flowers and insects, nudes and laundry. She is renowned as a draftsman as well as a painter; this rare fresco work combines both aspects of her art. Her work is in the collections of the Whitney Museum, the Cooper Hewitt, the Farnsworth Art Museum, the Portland Museum of Art, and the Colby College Museum of Art, among many others. She is represented by Alexandre Gallery in New York and Caldbeck Gallery in Rockport; this year she has solo shows at both.
