A View from the South

SGC International is pleased to share with you the publication of a book about the work of our founding father, Boyd Saunders, written by SGCI Honorary Member of the Council awardee Thomas Dewey.

A View from the South is the first comprehensive examination of the life and art of one of America’s premier printmakers. Thomas Dewey II chronicles Saunders’s work as a printmaker, painter, sculptor, illustrator, author, educator, amateur musician, and sometimes horseman. With great care Dewey exposes the common thread that runs through Saunders’s visual expressions: his intriguing tales that reveal his heartfelt devotion to the people and places of the American South. His art is exhibited throughout the world and is included in many private and public collections, including the Boston Public Library, the U.S. Wildlife Collection in Washington, D.C., and the Shanxi University in China.

Thomas Dewey II is a faculty emeritus associate professor of art history at the University of Mississippi. He has published widely in professional journals.
