Girls Standing on Lawns
Description
This unique collaboration between the renowned artist and illustrator Maira Kalman, the bestselling author Daniel Handler (better known as Lemony Snicket, author of A Series of Unfortunate Events), and The Museum of Modern Art combines photographs from MoMA's collection, paintings by Kalman that were inspired by the photos, and lyrical prose by Handler. Poetic and thought-provoking, Girls Standing on Lawns reflects the creators' shared fascination with anonymous snapshots and the rich lives, memories, and stories they evoke. It is a meditation on childhood, home, family, and the act of seeing—girls, women, friends, families, and even pets from days gone by grace the pages, enticing readers to imagine these people, their lives, and where they have gone. This is the first title in a series of collaborations between Maira Kalman and MoMA.
