Lawrence Fine Art

Name : Elaine Wesley
Biography :

 In today's hyper-commercial art market, the artist who is devoted solely to his or her craft is rare. "Rediscovered Master" Elaine Wesley (1923-2007) is one such artist. She largely shunned the art world to devote herself completely to her work--almost to the point of being a recluse.


She left behind a treasure trove of work, including subtle, intricate, pointillist abstractions, often in concentric circles, with a surrealistic feel and somewhat reminiscent of Georgia O'Keefe. She studied at the Art Students League with Nahum Tschacbasov and Henry Sternberg. Early in her career, she exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, the Brooklyn Museum and the Waverly Place Gallery.


Lawrence Fine Art is proud to be one of the first to show this extraordinary new find.
