Agnes Pelton was a surrealist and transcendentalist painter. Agnes Pelton was born in Stuttgart, Germany in the year 1881.
Pelton attended the Pratt Institute located in New York City.
The artist could expressive herself using different styles of painting. Pelton was great at capturing the plants and trees of the southwest landscape. My favorite works are those that explore hard edged abstraction with interesting shapes.
Price range information: Sorry none available.
The artist worked with oils and pastels.

Agnes Pelton passed away in 1961. She was 79 years old.
Agnes Pelton is an often overlooked artist who held her own against mainly male contemporaries. I find her style reminds me of the Swedish artist Hilma Af Klint. Both artists were spiritual in their approach to painting and ended up being among the first abstract painters.
