From "Acknowledgments" by H. Nichols B. Clark.
"We are delighted to present the exhibition, Picturing the World: The Art of Alice and Martin Provensen, and we recognize that much of what is on view constitutes a seamless collaboration between Alice and her late husband Martin. During a project, they passed works back and forth, so that their hands are virtually inseparable. Since Martin's death in 1987, Alice has continued to create wonderful books. They cover a broad spectrum of subject matter, crossing time and space. Her independent books retain the affinity for a flow and sequence of image both she and Martin learned in the animation studios during the 1940s. Of equal importance, their books forged an ongoing passion for untutored naive art - from Edward Hicks to Douanier Rousseau - that reflect the simple, rural life the Provensens embraced in the 1950s."
