Foreword by John Berendt and Essay by Bruce Helander.
Exciting, unexpected, impressionistic—the Slonem bunny paintings run the gamut. This is a mega collection for the adult and child alike that is publishing for the Easter holiday but is sure to last for many years to come. A treasury filled with enchanting four-color and black-and-white paintings by celebrated artist Hunt Slonem, Bunnies features a foreword by bestselling author (and friend of the artist) John Berendt and an essay by artist and gallerist, Bruce Helander. John Berendt writes, “Every morning, upon rising--even before he's had his first cup of --Hunt Slonem performs his daily warm-ups…. He approaches his work table where a stack of small rectangular panels awaits. Some of the panels are made of wood, some of Masonite. In the course of the next half hour he will have populated all the panels with rabbits. These paintings are what he calls his warm-ups.”
This limited run of Bunnies comes in a large gold cloth box, complete with a numbered print of a work created just for this set. Only 100 copies were made for sale.
