Christina Ramberg

Christina Ramberg 1946-1995 Untitled (Torso With Leaf)  1980  acrylic on masonite  15" x 11.5"

Ramberg received her MFA at SAIC the year I arrived to start mine. She was an integral part of the Chicago Imagist movement that had started in the late 60's with the Hairy Who group of Jim Nutt, Gladys Neilson, Jim Falconer, Art Green. Her distinct take on the female form coincided with the feminist movement that had started in the 60's. Her beautifully executed works reflected her interest in the female condition, social mores and a outsider's take on society.
