Abstract:

"Alice Schille (1869-1955) was one of the finest watercolor artists of her time and among the foremost woman watercolorists ever produced in America. Born in Columbus, Ohio, she studied art in New York and Paris and was influenced by progressive art movements. Remarkably for a woman in that era, she was a world traveler, painting throughout the U.S. (including the Southwest), Europe, North Africa, and Latin America. One of Schille's greatest achievements is her communication of the fascination she herself derived from these travels." "Alice Schille brings together the artist's finest painting - still lifes, landscapes and gardens, mothers and children, market and harbor scenes. She captured the naturalness of childhood in an extremely appealing way, producing a series of warm, affecting images, managing a rare balance of realism and sentiment." "Alice Schille provides a full-scale critical biography and retrospective showing of the artist's work in the context of selected works by her contemporaries. It further documents her life and career with an illustrated Chronology; lists of Selected Exhibitions, Permanent Collections, Prizes and Awards, and Memberships; Bibliography and Index."--BOOK JACKET.
