Things of Nature And the Nature of Things: John Wilde In the McClain Collection, By Lisa Wainwright. Published 2006 by Chazen Museum of Art. ISBN:0932900984. The Museum describes the books as follows: "Things of nature and the nature of things have informed the work of John Wilde for some seventy years. In painstakingly crafted vignettes of figures and props and still life arrangements, Wilde serves up grand parables on the existential condition of modern man. These are timeless and enduring narratives, drawing on traditions from the northern and early Renaissance periods and Flemish paintings to Symbolist and Surrealist iconography and strategy. Wilde amasses a potpourri of sources and motifs and brings them up to the present moment by setting his compositions in the Wisconsin landscape just outside his studio door. In this exhibition, the McClain collection presents a superb overview of Wilde's oeuvre. It includes the full palette of still lifes, allegorical landscapes, and portraits, and covers the period of Wilde's work from the 1940s to recent work from the 1990s."
