Going Places: Women Artist Travelers in the Early 20th Century
(New York, NY) Hawthorne Fine Art is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition Going Places: Women Artist Travelers of the Early 20th Century. The exhibit will highlight American women artists who traveled throughout Europe, and the far reaches of Asia and North Africa in pursuit of their art. Featuring over 30 works by 15 artists the exhibition brings together new acquisitions and rarely before seen work by a group of intrepid women artists.
Ohio native, Alice Lolita Muth (1887-1952) will be represented with nearly a dozen works from a career that spanned four decades and three continents. Muth lived in France, and in Spain completely immersed in the culture before settling in North Africa. Vivid and animated, her work includes landscapes such as Rolling Fields, Mountain Landscape, and Countryside Villa and portraits such as Portrait de Deux Tunisiennes.
Also included is Women and Children in Anticoli, c.1908-1910, a major work by American Impressionist Martha Walter (1875-1976). A new acquisition, the work depicts washerwomen with their children returning home after a day of labor in the hilltop village of Anticoli Corrado, just north of Rome, Italy.
Lilla Cabot Perry’s (1848-1933) Theater Posters, Ikao, Japan, 1900 depicts colorful theater banners and architectural details before a majestic mountain landscape. A native of Boston, Perry lived for nine years in Giverny, France where she was a friend and neighbor of Claude Monet. She later spent three years living in Japan.
