Anne Truitt is a sculptor, painter, mother, and grandmother. This is part of a fascinating diary of an important American artist who was a woman. Daybook, her first published journal, is illuminating and nourishing: "It is as if there are external equivalents for truths which I already in some mysterious way know. She tries to describe how her vocation as an artist and her life as a woman, wife and mother intersect, producing a unique way both of experiencing the world and making art. Her writing feels honest.

Based on journals written in 1991 and 1992, Prospect contains Anne Truitt's luminous reflections on her rich, full life as an artist, mother, grandmother, and teacher. Preparing to confront the unpredictable twilight of life, Truitt charts her fears and triumphs, joys and sadness, her most poignant memories of the past and clearest visions for the future. In the year of her seventieth birthday, events converge that force Truitt to reevaluate her life.

Artists then make decisions in terms of a role defined by others, falling into their power and serving to illustrate .

Artists then make decisions in terms of a role defined by others, falling into their power and serving to illustrate their theories. The Renaissance focused this social attention on the artist's individuality, and the focus persists today in a curious form that on the one hand inflates artists' egoistic concept of themselves and on the other places them at the mercy of the social forces on which they, become dependent. Artists can suffer terribly in this dilemma. Anne Truitt, excerpts (1974-79) from Daybook: The journal of an artist (Middlesex: Penguin, i982), 10-11, 23-24,40-41, 51-52, 81-82, 96,115,117,128,179-80, 200-201.

She uses polar/Arctic sailing missions, such as Shackleton & Robert Fitzroy who sailed the ship Darwin was on when he developed his theory that survival of the fittest was a law of nature. Truitt wrote three books based on her journals (she died in 2004). She writes Prospect at age 70 with a strong vocabulary, and as an ardent classical reader. Her art was minimalist, but she has applied all she learned from the many batterings of life, to give the reader poetic insight into art, family, marriage, career, home and beauty.

I'm sorry I didn't know her - could I say any more? True to her vision in a period of time where it wouldn't have been so easy, she writes about the inspiration and the process. there are a series of three journals and this is the first. She's engaging, lighthearted, and smart: a gift for any artist of any type, and particularly one that's young and female. Excellent.

A great book, it was wonderful. I paid about a dollar for the book and was floored when I discovered the book had been signed by the artist! I intend to read it again, I enjoy learning about the process an artist goes through to bring their work to the public. I highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to learn about the creative individual's challenges and lifestyle choices. As someone who has spent a lifetime studying the visual arts this is a book I prize in my library.

I bought this book from Amazon on a whim, knowing nothing about the author/artist. I have since bought her first book and will buy her second book too. My only quibble is that there are no images of her work.

I loved her reflective intelligent commentary on her inner and outer life. She incorporates quotes from books she is reading and her thoughts on the subject as well as descriptions and opinions of people that she interacts with; and thoughts and feelings about her art, past and present and the exhibitions that she has participated in.

Highly recommended to the older female artist, as well as to aspiring journal writers and diarists. Although the journal is highly edited for publication it is an inspiring example of the genre.

This book is incredibly well written. The author has a way of using even the most common words to uniquely describe her feelings, memories and thoughts. It is a book to be enjoyed by any reader, artist or not, but especially for mature readers who want to be pulled into the story of a life well lived. This beautiful book for me only disappointed in terms of my own expectations: I had hoped for more details and information on the life of a working artist. While, of course, her life as an artist is woven throughout, this is not necessarily a book that will inspire artists in their own works (in my opinion), or offer deep insight into the working mind and heart of an artist - although the reader will find some such related tidbits.

This, the last journal of artist Anne Pruitt, shares her experience with aging, the dilemma of making money in the art world, how to manage your collection, family, and dying. She is an ispiration and explores these tough issues in a tender and determined fashion. As an artist, she reminds me that I am not alone in my process.
