A large painting signed Reva 1985 whose full name is Reva Urban and who died in 1987. This painting was De-accessioned from the National Art Club in NY. Corners are a bit rough and worn. Painting has a bit of paint loss. Reva Urban (eventually known simply as "Reva") was an American woman artist who achieved success in the art world in the 1950s and 1960s. Her career offers important insights into the relationship of gender to art production, form, and content. Like that of some of her contemporaries, Reva's engagement in feminist ideas augured concerns that became increasingly prominent in the art of the late 1960s and beyond. Reva Urban spent her youth in California . In 1941 she returned to New York and studied with a Carnegie Fellowship at the Art Students League of New York . In 1949 she married the German painter Albert Urban (1909-1959), after his death she married George Robert Carley (1913-1993). From 1958 she exhibited her works nationally and internationally. Ms. Urban has had the distinction of representing the United States in two festivals in Salzburg, and a selection of her paintings and graphics has toured European museum under the auspices of the United States of America Information Service.
