New York, NY USA

Opening Reception: Thursday October 21, 5-7 pm

The Tibor de Nagy Gallery is pleased to present a selection of paintings by the celebrated women artists whose work has been shown actively in New York since the 1950s.

The exhibition will comprise landscapes, interiors, and still-lifes. Biala, an American artist who spent decades living and working in Paris, developed a style that was a synthesis of the intimacy and light often associated with early French Modernism, and a painterly directness and active brush strokes of Abstract Expressionism. Nell Blaine and Jane Freilicher, friends and colleagues who studied under the influential Hans Hoffmann, were important members of the second-generation New York School of artists. Early in their careers, the artists experimented with abstraction as well as representational painting, eventually finding their voices in the representational style with which they are most closely associated.
