Born in Vermont in 1917, Dahlov Zorach was raised in New York City by her parents, the famed sculptor William Zorach and artist Marguerite Zorach. The family spent summers at their 1820s farmhouse in Georgetown, Maine, where she met Adolph Ipcar. She and Adolph married in 1936 and the following year, they moved permanently to Maine, where she has farmed, painted, and worked on writing and illustrating books ever since. Today, Ipcar’s intricate, vibrant, and fanciful artwork is known worldwide, and her paintings are in the permanent collections of numerous renowned museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Her unique and distinctly modern style has helped change the role of artwork in children’s literature. Her stories are often about the pleasures of a simple life and the power of the imagination. In her long and illustrious career, Ipcar has written more than thirty children’s books.
