Dec 26, 2007 Ruth rated it 5 of 5 stars Recommends it for: anyone interested in art and artists
Nancy Hale's father Philip was a painter, art critic, and teacher. Her mother, Lillian Westcott Hale, was a portrait painter. She grew up in a house not only permeated with art, but glowing with the joy of making art. This memoir is full of that joy. I think it's gone out of print, which is a damned shame.
