See all of our Patsy Smith Art Videos here https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeAeBTd94XtG_9EX49lIBQdCG4ZLxxDNM There have been many great abstract artists since this time, but Wassily Kandinksky was considered the original pioneer. Other names such as Jackson Pollack, Franz Kline, and Helen Frankenthaler also come to mind. These individuals and many more influenced our modern day abstract art...

"The Convalescent" (1912). A dreamy feeling pervades Lilian Westcott Hale's impressionist masterpiece, The Convalescent, at Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery. Loose brushwork, warm coloring, and graceful composition direct our attention to the painting's only detail - the alluring face of Rose Zeffler, a friend of the artist, who appears to be relaxing in bed. Her distant, empty gaze suggests she is lost in thought.
