Betsey in Her Bed, 1965

Mary Sinclair Centennial Retrospective on view through Saturday, April 5.

Posted: March 23, 2014 08:01

This show covers sixty-five years of paintings and works on paper, from 1933 to 1997. Sinclair's children, her home, and her Union City, New Jersey, neighborhood, were her most important subjects. She considered herself an impressionist. Her son, the artist Richard Barnet, noted, “The skill and beauty of Mary Sinclair’s drawing-in-color does not stand alone. Rather, central to her work are the compositions. She always builds powerful designs from these elements: people and the places they inhabit.”
