Anne Ryan American

Not on view

Anne Ryan only began making collages at the age of 58, after she saw a show of works by Kurt Schwitters. One of the principal dealers of the Abstract Expressionists, Betty Parsons, brought her fame by showing them from 1950–55. After Ryan’s death, her work faded from view.
