About

Signed and titled recto A masterful example of the artist's series of music inspired works of art. Haas had the condition known as synesthesia. Watercolor on paper and mixed pigments on paper Housed in a brand new frame under UV plexiglass Image: 15 3/4 x 11 3/4" Frame: 23 1/4 x 18 3/4" Note: Throughout her lifetime Haas had a condition known as synesthesia. Synesthesia, as defined by Wikipedia, is a perceptual phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. Many famous artists, poets, musicians and authors throughout history have had synesthesia including Vincent Van Gough, Duke Ellington, Billy Joel, and Vladimir Nabokov. Haas' form of synesthesia is known as 'projective synesthesia'. With projective synesthesia Haas saw colors, shapes and/or forms when experiencing audio stimulation. Haas used this condition to her advantage in creating some of her works of art. While working in her studio she would listen to music, and paint what she 'saw'. In her classical music series, created in the 1960s, Haas created paintings while she listened to classical music pieces by Bach, Handel, and Beethoven, and painted what she experienced. Born in Frankfurt, Germany Studied at the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center, University of Chicago, and the Art Students League, NYC with modernists Vaclav Vytlacil and Morris Kantor Haas exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, 'Young American Printmakers', an important groundbreaking show. Works by Haas are in the permanent collections of: Museum of Modern Art Library of Congress National Gallery of Art, Washington Smithsonian American Art Museum City of San Francisco Seattle Museum of Art Dallas Museum of Fine Art Worcester Art Museum Cleveland Art Museum.
