Andree Ruellan (American, 1905-2006) oil on canvas titled "Three Women" featuring 3 women in domestic dress, signed lower right. Brass plaque on frame: "Three Women, Andree Ruellan, 1905, Harriet Russell Stanley Memorial". Exhibited at the New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain, CT and the GA Museum of Art in Athens, GA. Excellent condition. Sight: 21 5/8" H x 27 5/8" W. Framed: 31 1/2" H x 37 5/8" W. Biography: A child prodigy, Andr?e Ruellan's drawings and watercolors of New York City street life were first exhibited when she was 9, and she won a scholarship to the Art Students League at the age of 15. Travels to the South resulted in her fascination with Southern subject matter, and her paintings from 1930s and 40s reflect the influence of the American regionalist aesthetic, in particular the work of Thomas Hart Benton. In the early 1940s, her paintings were acquired by several important private and public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Phillips Collection. She was awarded a Guggenheim fellowship in 1950.
