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, 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.
