Harriet Holden Nash
1940's Abstract Modernist Charming Figural Interior Portrait Painting New York




An original oil on board by American modern female artist Harriet Holden Nash. This early figurative work is charming and rare housed in a contemporary archival frame presentation. Abstract expressionist painter Harriet Holden Nash was born in 1933 and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She gained attention for her art from an early age and began exhibiting at age 17. Nash attended Cooper Union in New York City and studied under lauded artists of the day including Louis Grebenak and Willem de Kooning. Part of the post-World War II movement of Abstract expressionists, Nash focused on abstract shapes and forms. She was influenced by such notable expressionists as Arshile Gorky, Pablo Picasso and De Kooning. Nash enjoyed experimenting with color and painted with oils and later, acrylic. She painted pure abstractions, human forms, nature and urban landscapes. Drawn to bright, vivid hues, Nash also produced sculptures and made forms from found objects.
