Dorothy Hood is a noted Abstract Expressionist, born in Bryan, Texas, in 1919. She spent a significant amount of time in Mexico and was influenced by her friend Jose Clemente Orozco. This prolific painter created many oversized canvases with large areas of solid and unusual colors. A poet as well as a painter, she became part of the circle of leading artists and writers of Europe and Mexico. Her life and painting has inspired two films: "From the Heart," 1982, and "Dorothy Hood: The Color of Life," 1985.
