About the Item

These new paintings illuminate individuals of the American Suffrage Movement. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Ida B Wells and Alice Paul, each one intelligent, brave and incredibly relentless in the struggle to attain voting rights for American women. This series of paintings portrays the ardent women involved in the American Suffrage Movement which led up to the 19th Amendment which passed in 1920. The Suffrage Movement held public marches spanning from the Eastern United states out west to California and up to the Pacific Northwest. Suffragettes wore purple and golden yellow ribbons and flew purple and golden yellow banners to publicly show their unity. Fascinated by American history, Mary Dwyer blends the American Folk Art tradition with an abstract modernist aesthetic. The inspiration of her work revolves around historic lore and love of early portraiture paintings. Drawn from extensive research sometimes found to be inexact and often contradictory, Mary’s work becomes her own personal interpretation of history. She creates series of paintings, which portray political, historic and personal details that shaped a historic figure's life. Ms. Dwyer is a 2008 recipient of Connecticut Artist Fellowship Grant. Her work has been shown in museums and galleries in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut and London. Her paintings are in the collection of the New Britain Museum of American Art, Connecticut Mary Dwyer incorporates color abstraction juxtaposing color blocks with her version of historic figure painting, which adds a 21st century context for her subjects.
