Known for his monumental wall reliefs and sculptures of animals from the 1970s, American artist Bernard Langlais (1921Ė1977) created a diverse oeuvre of paintings, sculptures and environments that shifted regularly and freely between abstraction and figuration--a shift that reflects Langlaisí constant effort to reconcile his rural roots (in Maine) and keen sense of place with postwar artistic movements and ideologies. Now, in celebration of a substantial bequest by the artistís widow, Helen Friend Langlais, the Colby College Museum of Art has organized a long-overdue retrospective of Langlaisí career, which this publication accompanies. Alongside abundant illustrations, three essays trace the arc of Langlaisí career, from his early experiments in painting and his transition to wood sculpture in the 1960s to his return to figuration and his exhaustive exploration of animal motifs.
