Lawrence Fine Art

Name : Amaranth Ehrenhalt
Biography :

 The story of the post-WWII New York School painters is still being written. A well-timed show at the Denver Art Museum explores the contribution of the "Women of Abstract Expressionism" such as Elaine DeKooning, Joan Mitchell and Grace Hartigan. The only living member of that group is Amaranth Ehrenhalt.


Ehrenhalt journeyed to Paris after the war and settled there as an expatriate artist for the next forty-odd years. Le Select Cafe was the place where artists and cognoscenti met. There she met the noted German artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser, with whom she became lovers. There Ehrenhalt met Beauford Delaney and Yves Klein, among others. There she befriended Giacometti. And there she exhibited with, among others, Joan Mitchell and Sam Francis.


Ehrenhalt has recently returned to the States. We at Lawrence Fine Art are proud to be representing the work of this important artist.
