Elizabeth Murray

Elizabeth Murray (1940-2007)  Children Meeting  1978  oil on canvas  101 3/16" x 127"  

Native Chicago artist who studied at SAIC, Murray became a major painter in the 70's when it was much more difficult for women to break into the contemporary painting scene. She is one of only 4 woman to have been given a retrospective at MOMA in New York. Her vibrant paintings of abstract forms that eventually developed into shaped canvas's were always a joy for me to experience.
