ANNE RYAN   (1889-1954)
Anne Ryan, The Black-Line Woodcut, 1945-48, was shown at the Gallery from October 19 through November 19, 2011. The Prismatic Eye: Collages by Anne Ryan, 1948-1954, was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2010. Within an abbreviated career from 1939 to 1953, Ryan made paintings, drawings, collages, plaster pieces, ceramics, and prints --- including a highly innovative body of woodcuts. Ryan began painting in 1938 when she was nearly fifty. Her first one-woman painting show was at the Pinacotheca Gallery, NY, in 1941. She lived in Greenwich Village: the artists Giorgio Cavallon, Hans Hofmann, Barnet Newman, Jackson Pollock, and Tony Smith, were among her friends. She was among the few women included in the now legendary Ninth Street Art Exhibition of 1951.
