Artist and Model [PDF]

Artist and Model—Carol Snow’s remarkable first book—was selected by Robert Hass for the 1989 National Poetry Series, and was the winner of the 1990 Poetry Center Book Award and the 1985 Joseph Henry Jackson Award in Literature. Inspired by the work of artists from Botticelli and Giotto, to Brassaï, Matisse and Monet, these vivid poems illuminate the relationship between life and Art with exquisite beauty and skill.

“… Carol Snow reflects on the struggle toward—and the limits of—representation itself. The gaze and the world; the world and the body; the world embodied. Artist & Model is a first book of singular poetic intelligence and attention.” —Michael Palmer

A poetic turn at the artist/model relationship, Snow evokes Botticelli, Giotto, Brassaï, Matisse, Monet and others.

On the Arena Chapel: “… and Giotto / had chosen a greenish cast for the skin, / straining the upheld arms, skewing / the wounded torso and bent legs, bowing forward / the still face: Word made flesh, not stylized; dead / weight to be lifted down, angels writhing.”

On Matisse drawing: “branches— / already almost line—and leaves— / surface—Matisse will draw (will reduce / to line) as his morning exercise. / ‘… not just a question of copying this branch, but of creating something equivalent to it.’”

“… a subtle, beautiful book lit with its own silvery passion.” —Richard Silberg
