Anyone interested in southwest paintings should read this book.

Practicing the conservation of paintings for the last 40 years, I find the book EVERYTHING BUT GRAY : The life of Audley Dean Nichols a great resource for treating the paintings by Nichols. Not only are the color illustrations spot on when viewing his original works, the research into some of his technique as well as what his dealers did was very helpful in restoring his paintings. The depth of research and the readability of the prose made it an easy and informative read. Anyone interested in southwest paintings or anyone wanting to view beautifully illustrated examples of that genre should read this book.
