About

Titled Carnival with bright colors and geometric shape of a circus carousel, this bears some elements of the color field blocks of Mark Rothko. New York born painter and printmaker, Rita Leff studied under Louis Schanker, Abraham Rattner and Adja Yunkers at the Art Students League, New York, the Brooklyn Museum School of Art and at Parsons School of Design. She began to exhibit her art in 1950 with the Brooklyn Society of Artists. Later she exhibited with the Audubon Artists (1955-58), the Boston Printmakers, the Society of American Graphic Arts and the National Association of Women Artists. In 1971 Rita Leff moved to West Palm Beach, Florida, where she died in 1979. She was a member of the Audubon Artists, the National Association of Women Artists and the Society of American Graphic Artists. Her original prints and paintings are included in the collections of such major institutions as the Brooklyn Museum, Library of Congress, Washington, DC, Pennsylvania State University and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
