Nell Blaine
"Anemones and Star of Bethlehem" Impressionist Still Life Painting


$35,000Asking Price


A beautiful still life of flowers titled "Anemones and Star of Bethlehem" by renowned artist Nell Blaine. Oil on canvas circa 1970. Dimensions with frame: 35" h x 29.25" w x 2.5" d Nell Blaine was an American artist best known for her brightly colored oils and watercolors. Painted in a loosely brushed style, her depictions of still lifes and landscapes have a casual yet poignant quality, similar to the works of Fairfield Porter, Louisa Matthíasdóttir, and Jane Freilicher. “In the end, what affects your life most deeply are things too simple to talk about,” the artist once said. Born on July 10, 1922 in Richmond, VA, Blaine studied at the Richmond School of Art before moving to New York in 1942. In the city, she studied under the prominent abstract painters Hans Hofmann and Stanley William Hayter. In 1959, the artist tragically contracted paralytic polio in Greece. Though she had to be in a wheelchair the rest of her life, she fortunately regained the use of her arms and hands. Considered among the most important American landscape painters of the 20th century, her legacy includes a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Women's Caucus for Art in 1986. The artist died on November 14, 1996 in New York, NY. Today, her works are in the collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Denver Art Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.
