Ruth Abrams (artist)
Brooklyn, New York, United States
|Died||12 March 1986|
|Movement||New York School|
Abrams worked with William Zorach, Alexander Archipenko, John D. Graham, and others. From 1965 to 1966, she was the art director at the Research Association of The New School, and also lectured at the Parsons The New School for Design.
As a painter, she belonged to the New York School. After her death, a critic from The New York Times remarked that she was "a woman unfairly neglected in a macho era." Her papers are held at the Yeshiva University Museum and the Smithsonian Archives of American Art.
While Abrams was alive, she never had a solo exhibition of her work. A solo exhibition occurred for the first time at the Yeshiva University Museum, entitled: "Microcosms: Ruth Abrams, Abstract Expressionist" from August 12, 2012‐January 6, 2013. Many of the canvases in the exhibit were shown for the first time.
