Book Premiere of
Gallery 339 is pleased to present an exhibition to accompany the release of Children of Adam, poems by Walt Whitman, photoworks by Paul Cava, published by edition GALERIE VEVAIS, Germany.
Edition GALERIE VEVAIS is pleased to present an illustrated edition of the ‘Children of Adam’ cycle of poems from the American literary masterpiece “Leaves of Grass” by Walt Whitman. ‘Children of Adam’ is the legendary group of poems that caused the book to be banned in Boston at its publication in 1882. Whitman’s theme was the male and female body, entirely naked in every sense—and he steadfastly resisted any suggestion of censorship.
This boldly illustrated new edition of the poems brings together two pioneers of American culture, both coincidentally natives of Brooklyn, New York: Walt Whitman, the beloved American poet who continues to inspire readers worldwide, and the contemporary artist Paul Cava, born more than a century later in 1949. John Wood, Arden Kass and Alexander Scholz contribute original and informative essays; technical and scholarly guidance are supplied by noted Whitman scholars Prof. Ed Folsom and Prof.Walter Grünzweig.
