Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0374150907, Hardcover)Elizabeth Bishop was a great poet. It turns out that she was also a rather good painter, even though she insisted that her paintings were anything but art. Her visual creations offer intimate and unexpected insights into the magic of familiar places and beloved friends. Exchanging Hats provides both veteran Bishop admirers and those meeting her for the first time with an extraordinary examination of her paintings and drawings.

Thought not many people know it, Elizabeth Bishop painted throughout her life, as this handsome book, reproducing in full color forty of her watercolors, demonstrates. Benton gives the provenance, dimensions, and (where possible) the date of each painting; he also cites painterly passages from Bishop's writing.
