Joyce Treiman

Joyce Treiman  1922-1991 Joker and Flower  14" x 11" pastel on paper  1990

Treiman came from the midwest to Southern California in the 40's after studying at Iowa University and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She taught for years at UCLA. Her love of the old masters and Eakins is always evident in her figure landscapes that are infused with surrealist undertones. It seems that you just can't take the Chicago influence out of an artist once they have succumbed to it's siren song.
