  • Work Standing Up: The Life and Art of Paul Fontaine shines light on an artist who, while under recognized during his lifetime, converged with some of the twentieth century’s most important artists and movements, in the United States and abroad. The book is beautifully produced and traces through a series of essays Fontaine’s contribution to a tumultuous period in the history of art. At its heart, the book contains a compelling personal story: A series of short, lyrical essays by Fontaine’s daughter provide a unique chronology of the artist’s life. Work Standing Up combines the best aspects of a monographic art book and a personal memoir, making for a very satisfying and visually rewarding reading experience.          –Dalia Azim, Blanton Museum, Austin, Texas
