Renowned for his innovative work with silkscreen printing, Lou Stovall’s works are part of numerous collections, including the National Gallery of Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, and Phillips Collection. Washington Post art critic Paul Richard once wrote, “As a printer of his own art, and of the art of many others, as a framer and installer and shepherd of collections, Stovall has inserted more art into Washington than almost anyone in town.”

Of the Land presents a series of prints and poems that follow the life and work of the master silkscreen printer as he was developing his unique techniques in the 1970s—a period of jazz, protest, and prolific art production in Washington, DC.

Praise for the book:

"Lou's son Will captures the melody and harmony that shaped his father. Of the Land is more than a book. It is a vessel filled with lovely poems and prints."
—E. Ethelbert Miller, writer and literary activist

"Of the Land offers rich information and deep insights about the vitality of the art scene and political community in Washington DC in the 1960s and early 70s."
—Dorothy Kosinski, Vradenburg Director and CEO, The Phillips Collection

"Sheds delightful, compelling light on an energetic and prolific corner of our nation's art world."
Jonathan P. Binstock, Mary W. and Donald R. Clark Director, Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester
