What My Heart Has SeenBook - 1996
"One of America's most cherished entertainers, Tony Bennett is also a prolific visual artist. This beautiful book presents his best work in nearly every medium, from pencil sketches on hotel stationery to his beloved watercolors and oils, paired with photographs from his albums and his personal recollections of the people and places he has captured on canvas." "Tony Bennett is known and loved as a singer and performer. He has sold over 30 million records worldwide during his 45 years as an entertainer. But this six-time Grammy winner is also a dedicated artist whose paintings have been exhibited in galleries around the world. He sets aside time each day to paint, whether on the road or at home in his studio." "From Bennett's extensive travels comes a series of paintings featuring Central Park in New York City, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the Sydney Opera House in Australia, and more of his favorite sights throughout the world. Three gatefolds, modeled after Japanese scrolls, showcase the skylines of Manhattan, San Francisco, and Tokyo, illustrating their impressive sweep and scale. Portraits from his self-proclaimed "gallery of friends" range from fellow musicians Duke Ellington and Frank Sinatra to family members and his adored dog, Boo." "The formal art training of Anthony Dominic Benedetto - his full name, with which he signs his work - culminated in a degree from the prestigious High School for Industrial Art in New York City, before his first foray into the entertainment world. His lifelong dream to share his art with his many fans is fulfilled in What My Heart Has Seen."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
