Harry Widman: Image, Myth, and Modernism chronicles the life and times of the highly regarded Portland painter and teacher, who taught for 36 years at the Pacific Northwest College of Art (formerly the Portland Art Museum School) and served as interim dean during a critical period in the college’s history. Responding to the work of artists as diverse as Wassily Kandinsky and Robert Motherwell, Widman forged a mature style that combined an abstract vocabulary and sensibility with social and political commentary.
