To Form from Air

Music and the Art of Raymond Jonson

Robert Ware, Author

"To Form From Air" presents Jonson's masterpieces of the 1920s-1940s, exploring the intimate confluence of visual art and music that defined twentieth century modernism.


"Jonson was not only a painter of significance in his own right; was arguably the single most important figure for supporting, introducing, and attracting modern art and artists to New Mexico, particularly in the post-World War II era? To Form from Air is a much-needed contribution to our understanding of Jonson and his place in the history of twentieth-century New Mexican and American modern art. The text is enhanced by the excellent quality and design of its accompanying color illustrations."
