In her own words, Ann Cushing Gantz summarizes her art career: "Even my earliest childhood memories are full of crayon, pencils, and chalk. I traded paper-doll drawings for arithmetic assignments in lower school and high school. Saturdays were spent at the Memphis Academy of Art. Work with Hans Hoffman and Jackson Pollock, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Newcomb College of Tulane University followed. The visual arts of printmaking, drawing, and painting have always been a basic life force with me."
This large abstraction has both figures and masks embedded in the composition.
Excellent condition. Period frame in excellent condition.
