Nell Blaine: Her Art and Life

This volume presents the art and life of Nell Blaine, a member of the second generation of the New York School. Her work represents a dialogue between abstract principles and her sensory responses to the visible world. Her oils and watercolours of gardens, landscapes and flower still lifes display her commitment to the pleasure principle, her delight in vision, combined with a gift for improvisation and rhythm learned from the jazz greats of the 1940s.
