Originally from New York, Jane Haskell (1923–2013) was an artist and a philanthropist who made Pittsburgh her home for nearly fifty years. Authors Vicky A. Clark and Melissa Hiller focus their examination on Haskell's sculpture, painting and drawing in which the emphasis on light is key. Drawing In Light is the first-ever in depth examination of Haskell's work and includes an introduction by her longtime friend and colleague Richard Armstrong, Director, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation, a biographical sketch by American Jewish Museum Director Melissa Hiller, and an essay by Hiller and art historian Vicky A. Clark, PhD. Observations by Haskell's friends, family and artworld luminaries add a personal dimension. The honest, perceptive comments about who she was and what she stood for contextualize this iconic and beloved figure.
