I am delighted today to present the work of painter Anthony Apesos in November's Artist Watch column at the international online arts magazine Escape Into Life.

Tony, who is a professor in Lesley University's Fine Arts and Art History departments, currently lives and works in Boston, Massachusetts. Founding director of the M.F.A. program in visual arts at the university, Tony also is the author of Anatomy for Artists: A New Approach to Discovering, Learning, and Remembering the Body (North Light Books, 2007); the book has been published in Europe in French, German, and Spanish editions. Currently, Tony is working on a book on historical painting methods, as well as a series of articles on self-portraiture in narrative paintings.

For Artist Watch, Tony has generously provided 13 images from his Tarot series, including the two above. The column also includes an Artist Statement and a biographical profile.
