Miriam Back:  Artist of Life

Artist of Life

Miriam Back (1918-1979) taught drawing and painting at the Little Red Art School, which she founded.

Her self portrait is shown at right, which she repainted frequently.

Two of her works are currently showing at the Andrea Rosen Gallery in New York City, and fifty more of them are on this memorial website.

She painted in a primitive but representational style with oils and acrylic on canvas, while suffering from Parkinson's Disease and later cancer.

The photo on the right is circa 1967.
