About

An expansive, semi-abstracted landscape showing a view of figures in a hayfield and distant trees beneath blue skies. Signed lower left, 'Pat Cunningham' for Patricia Stanley Cunningham (American, 1907-1984) and painted circa 1965. The first woman to serve as president of the Carmel Art Association, Patricia Stanley Cunningham first studied at UC Berkeley and, subsequently, under Hans Hofmann in Munich and with André Lhote in Paris. While in Paris in 1930, she wed a classmate from UC, John Cunningham. Settling on the Monterey Peninsula after returning from Europe, Cunningham joined the Carmel Art Institute, whose association she became president of, the Southwest Artists and the Society of Western Artists. Cunningham was both a teacher at Mills College in Oakland and UC Berkeley as well as a muralist and easel painter for the WPA Federal Art Project. In 1959, the Cunninghams founded the local chapter of the American Federation of Arts, which became the Museum of Monterey. Cunningham exhibited widely and with success, including at the 1940 Golden Gate International Exposition, Gump's Gallery (San Francisco), Salt Lake City Museum, Carmel Art Association, Portland Art Museum (Oregon) among others. Her work can be found in collections throughout the country, including the Smithsonian, the Museum of Monterey, Art Institute of Chicago and the Spencer Museum of Art.
