b. 1903 near Richmond, VA d. 1988
An eighth generation Virginian, Gwathmey took a job as a hand on a freighter. Later he attended Art school in Philadelphia. Still later he won a scholarship which allowed him to study abroad in Europe. He came back as Red as the day is long. Much later he took a job at a women’s university, Beaver College. -_-
Look it up.
Gwathmey described himself as a Social Realist but I’m not acknowledging them. I say that he was a Regionalist and that’s that. His work is wonderful and exactly what I find pleasing in a painting. Flow and intensity of color, and imagination.
Be kind. Rewind
