Accomplished Artists Embrace Aging with Boldness

For fifteen years Alice painted and interviewed inspiring older women, some famous and some without clothes, and Richard sculpted older men and couples, most without clothes. Together, they joined creative forces to present their groundbreaking work in a lavishly illustrated and highly inspirational book, 'The Art of Aging: Celebrating the Authentic Aging Self'. The book features 80 full-color plates and contains the Matzkins’ personal reflections on acceptance of the physical changes of age, sensuality and mature relationships, aging parents, spirituality and death.
