Ed Mell is a leader among contemporary painters of the Colorado Plateau. In this work, the author has captured the essence of Mell's art in a captivating biographical text, including one hundred twenty color plates representing Mell's best work to date. Mell's art, like that of Maynard Dixon or Ansel Adams, pushes the limites of reality, revealing places and objects accessible only in the artist's mind.
