Praise for the art of William Dunlap:

“Much of what we see on the white walls these days seems to serve as a light sorbet to clean the palate for the feast of Bill’s work... it’s rich and complex and it sustains.” Sally Mann, artist

“Larger than life and entirely up to art, Dunlap is to the dogtrot as Cezanne was to the orange.” Roy Blount, Jr., writer

“History, mystery, humor and homage lie between the layers of William Dunlap’s ‘hypothetical landscapes,’... reflecting the sensibility of a southern storyteller-gone-cosmpolitan.” Mary Lynn Kotz, author of Rauschenberg/Art and Life

DUNLAP is a comprehensive monograph on the art of William Dunlap.

While William Dunlap’s work resists classification, the artist refers to what he does as “hypothetical realism. These places and situations don't really exist, but they could."

Published by the University Press of Mississippi and written by J. Richard Gruber with a foreword by Julia Reed, this book includes some 120 color reproductions of work from a career spanning more than three decades, and establishes William Dunlap's reputation as a major American artist.
