This catalogue was published to accompany a traveling exhibition of the same name.

Everett Longley Warner was an artist whose life was devoted to the exploration of visual phenomena in the broadest possible terms. During his singular career, he not only produced an impressive body of paintings, watercolors, and etchings, but he worked as an art critic; wrote persuasively about the science of perspective and optics as applied to such varied subjects as highway markings and gallery lighting; served his country during both world wars designing naval camouflage; and distinguished himself as a fine teacher.
Features historic photos of Warner throughout his life along with 38 black and white images, and 10 full color plates.
