Art on the Wire!

Across
909: Another Regionalist painter with a focus on depicting scenes from rural America, the subject of this artist’s work resonated with the sentiment that farmers were the nation’s warriors on the home front during WWII. There is no abstraction to be found here!
912: One of only a few female artists featured in this exhibit, this woman has been referred to as the ‘Mother of American modernism’. It is said that she is ‘known as much for her independent spirit and female role model, as for her dramatic and innovative works of art.’ In the painting displayed here and the description provided with it, the artist gives a taste of her talent to see poetry in nature. The painting might also be a good reminder to everyone to get out of the city and find some nature – maybe upstate
908: The birth name of this artist was Emmanuel Radnitzky but after moving to the Williamsburg neighborhood in Brooklyn this name was changed. His art is often classified as Dada or Surrealist and he is known to use unusual materials. This is the case for the piece we are looking for – this ‘material’ is more commonly found in wardrobes than in museums.
902: What better way to acknowledge the influence of JP Morgan that through a work of art? This artist often includes a self-portrait in his/her work – can you find that person?
910: This German painter only lived for 36 years. In this short time he managed to influence the art world significantly. He is known for impressive paintings of animals and the symbolic use of colors. Both are apparent in the piece on display here.
905: It is said that Pablo Picasso said: “When Matisse dies” this artist “will be the only painter left who understands what color really is.” His paintings are magnificently colorful. Concert goers in Paris and New York can attest to this.
906: This artist was exiled to Switzerland during the war because his artwork was too revolutionary for the National Socialists to contemplate. Throughout his career he experimented with many different styles and mediums. This work, while simple in structure, perhaps evokes thoughts regarding its potentially deeper meaning.
Down
911: This artist provides us all with a good reminder that it is never too late to start painting. His art and also the piece displayed here are clearly inspired by the artist’s previous work. The industry he worked in might be more closely related to art but who is to say that Risk Management would not inspire some great painting?
904: This artist was renowned for his paintings and was one of the prominent artists of his time. His works emphasized flattened forms and a decorative style. In this work he commented on a change in his use of his background color of choice.
913: Because his parents did not want him to suffer the life of an artist, this artist first studied mechanical engineering. His talents as an engineer are very apparent in the many art pieces that are found in public squares of several US cities. He grew up and studied in Hoboken New Jersey. It might have been the sky over the Hudson that inspired the title of the construct on display here.
907: This self-taught artist’s work is reminiscent of the style of another well-known artist known for his mustache. While born in France, he spent the later part of his life in the United States.
901: The wife of another painter in this exhibit, this woman was a leading Surrealist of her time in her own right. Her works typically contain themes of an architectural nature and are often representations of various emotions
903: The work of this artist genuinely evokes the feeling of being on a city street. This artist was not very well known and, unfortunately, never saw his work on view in an exhibition.
900: In contrast with the trends towards modernism and abstraction at that time, this artist’s style is influenced by Flemish portraits and the German New Objectivity style. Who wouldn’t want to have been a part of this historic American event?
