A Modernist Still Life Oil Painting by a Woodstock, New York Artist
Stein was born in Canada and studied art with James Lechay and at Iowa State University. She held the position of designer for Charles Bloom Company in New York City. During the 1940's she exhibited at some of the leading modernist galleries in New York. In 1947 and 1948 she had one person shows at Ward Eggleston Gallery. She also showed at Parnassus Square Gallery. After she moved to Woodstock, New York she became an active member of the Woodstock Artist Association. She also was affiliated with the Artists Equity Association. (The Woodstock Artist Association files also show that she was a member of the New Haven Paint and Clay Club and that she showed at the Albany Museum of History and Art.)
Measurements are: painting, 20 inches x 16 inches; frame, outer dimensions, 26 3/4 inches x 22 3/4 inches.
Condition is very good overall. There are two small patch reinforcements on the back of the canvas but there is only a minute amount of touch-up that shows under ultraviolet light. (The affected area is about a 1/4 inch square.)
This is a very strong example for someone looking for Mid-century Modern and seeking fine art to go with their furniture and accessories. It is also an example by a woman artist who received considerable recognition during her career.
