About

This late 20th century ink and charcoal geometric abstract on form board is by French-American painter Georgette London Owens (b.1920). Owens was born in Paris and studied at École des Beaux-Art. She studied with the Cubist painter André Lhote for several years during WWII when Paris was under German occupation. She first held an atelier in Montparnasse adjacent to Alberto Giacometti. Picasso himself came to her first exhibition at Galerie Poirier and congratulated her. She exhibited throughout Paris in the late 1940s, at Musée D'Art Moderne, Le Palais de Tokyo, Musée des Beaux Arts, and the Salon des Indépendants. Owens moved to New York and exhibited at MOMA and several galleries on Madison Avenue. She met Salvador Dali, who became her mentor. Owens became an interior designer, first for Dali and then for clients such as Rex Harrison and Jackie Kennedy. She also designed jewelry and had a line commissioned by Pierre Cardin. In 1978 she moved to San Francisco and devoted all of her time to painting. In 1988, Owens founded the Alliance for Women Artists to help professional female artists exhibit both nationally and internationally. She continued to exhibit across Europe and traveled extensively. Owens lives in Marin County, California. Late 20th Century Ink & Charcoal on Foam Board 26"x50" framed, 16"x40" unframed Signed lower left.
