Agnes Pelton, Sand Storm, 1932.
The exhibition, Agnes Pelton: Desert Transcendentalist at Phoenix Art Museum is the first exhibition on the little-known American painter in more than 24 years. Although Pelton received some attention during her lifetime, she has been relatively unknown within the field of American Art. Approximately 40–45 works comprise this exhibition shedding light on Pelton’s artistic contribution to American Modernism, while examining her practice against a broader, international framework of spiritual and esoteric abstraction.
Made in the USA. Measures 3.5 x 2.5 in.
