Title: The Paynes - Edgar and Elsie: American Artists

Author(s): Rena Neumann Coen

"Here is the first fully rounded story of both the Paynes, providing a revealing analysis of their contributions to art, and placing them in the context of the art of this century. It is based on recent research and family records, and provides not only better understanding of their lives and work, but a sound basis for further study and evaluation. From the record of about a thousand pages of notes, transcriptions, clippings, photos and son on, Dr. Coen has appropriately abstracted and focused the essential points of their joint and separate careers. Readers will find perceptive details illuminating their lives and the art work of these two artists, intimately bound together yet distinctly separate in their artistic expression."
