    Hans Guggenheim: Sketching in Time and Space

    Hans Guggenheim is a rarity in today's world, a compassionate Renaissance man whose accomplishments in art, academia, and service span the globe. He was educated in England and lived in Guatemala during World War II. There he began painting and first exhibited his work publicly in 1945. Influenced by his parents' interest in art, he studied art history in New York. In 1956, he traveled the world for LIFE magazine, drawing and reporting on artists and exhibitions. He then returned to New York to pursue his graduate studies.

    In many ways Dr. Hans Guggenheim's sketchbooks are a response to his lifetime of studying the best art around the world; in doing so he observes, absorbs, witnesses, and processes the information through his passion for sketching while indulging his creative senses. In these captivating travel logs of both visual observations and intellectual insights, he provides us with his generosity of sight, delicately wrapped between layers of his revelatory perceptions and quirky humor. The breadth of his interests and the ease with which he journeys - from the steps of the New York subway to Mayan ruins or the towering Buddhas in Bamyan, Afghanistan - speak of his zeal to be a witness to all of the things that remind us of who we are: humans, alive and present.
