About

"Jagat," an original oil on canvas by Ann Thornycroft, is a piece for the true collector. Thornycroft's use of color immediately captivates the viewer. This painting is a phenomenal example of the artist's ability to project emotion via thick, deliberate strokes. It is paired perfectly with a 4-inch thick silver metallic wood frame that aids in the cascading of light across the painting. This masterful original artwork would make a great addition to an art collection and enhance most any home, perfect for those who have an affinity for abstracts, contemporary paintings, and color-rich works of art. Jagat is a Sanskrit word that means "world," specifically the physical world or planet. Jagat is understood as a person's subjective experience of reality in the material world.

Artist Info/Bio: ARTIST BIOGRAPHY DOCUMENT IS INCLUDED Documentation: CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY BY CALIFORNIA FINE ART BROKERS IS INCLUDED A piece for the true collector. Ann Thornycroft, an English painter, is known primarily for her large-scale grid compositions, covered with patterns of arcs, though the execution of these works varies in rigidity and expressiveness. In her words, “The grid symbolized nature and man. It is a very simple device, but it continues to capture my interest.” The recurring motifs of overlapping circular forms and arcs in her work resemble botanical forms. Thornycroft, born and raised in the English countryside, studied at the Brighton College of Art and the Central School of Art, before receiving her Higher Diploma in Art from the Chelsea School of Art. It was amidst these studies that she would receive her first grant, the Phoebe Llewelyn Smith prize for painting. Upon graduation, Thornycroft moved to New York City in 1969 and worked in several art-related jobs while she continued to pursue her painting. It wasn’t until 1972, however, when she moved to Venice Beach, that she found her true artistic home. She has lived in and around Venice ever since. Her work has earned her the Individual Artist’s Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and has been exhibited extensively over the past 40 years, beginning with the “Traditions/Five Painters” show at Artist’s Space, New York City, and multiple shows at the Rosamund Felsen Gallery, Los Angeles in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Most recently, Thornycroft had a solo exhibition at the Ruth Bachofner Gallery, Bergamot Station Arts Complex, in Santa Monica. She was also part of the 2018 group exhibition, “kelCher,” a Mosaic Recognition at the Franco Moragrega Gallery, in San Diego. Thornycroft has been featured in countless publications, including: • “Women In Art”, Volume 2, Selected Works of Contemporary Female Artists. Edited by Reinhard Fuchs, 2013 • The California/International Arts Foundation’s new encyclopedia “L.A.Rising: SoCal Artists Before 1980 (compiled by Lyn Kienholz), November 2010 • Geldzahler, Henry, “California as Art World Capital”, California Magazine, April 1984 • Harrington, Bev, “Contemporary Images in Watercolor, 1983”, (catalog) • Art in America, page 43, illustration, May 1981 Her works are included in numerous private and public collections, including: • Portland Art Museum, Portland, Oregon • Western Asset Management, Sao Paulo, Brazil • Korn/Ferry International • ARCO Corporation, Los Angeles, CA • Bank of America, San Francisco, CA • The Blankfort Collection, LACMA, Los Angeles, CA • Boise Art Museum, Boise, Idaho • Cedars Sinai Medical Center Los Angeles, CA • Disney Studios, CA • Hallmark, Kansas City, MO • HBO, New York • Kaiser Permanente, Los Angeles, CA • Long Beach Museum of Art, Long Beach, CA • PepsiCo, New York • Price Waterhouse, Los Angeles, CA • 20th Century Fox, Los Angeles, CA • Wells Fargo Bank, San Francisco, CA • Tokyo Park Tower, Tokyo, Japan • Four Seasons Hotels
