Spirit of the North | The Art of Eustace Paul Ziegler
By Kesler E. Woodward
Forewords by William S. Morris III and Patricia Wolf
Essay by Estill Curtis Pennington
This publication was produced in conjunction with the exhibition Spirit of the North: The Art of Eustace Paul Ziegler, organized by and exhibited at the Anchorage Museum of Art (May–September, 1998); Morris Museum of Art, Augusta, Georgia (November, 1998–January, 1999); and subsequently at other museums.
In his painting, Eustace Paul Ziegler captured the spirit of the early twentieth century Alaska frontier. Ziegler arrived in Cordova, Alaska, in January of 1909 to operate the Red Dragon, an Episcopal mission in the mining boom town. The young lay missionary quickly became known for his paintings of the people on the northern frontier-Native Alaskans, priests, miners, trappers, fishermen, and others living the rough but thrilling life of the still-new territory.
This publication includes forewords by William S. Morris III and Patricia Wolf, essay by Estill Curtis Pennington, bibliography of the artist along with a checklist of the exhibition, illustrations of the exhibition artwork and an index of illustrations.
