Margaret Brown Halsey
I would like to welcome you to a vibrant world of color.
My life has been devoted to the pursuit of art - painting, teaching, lecturing, writing, and designing. I studied at the Art Student's League in New York City, and received my Ph.D from New York University. My doctoral dissertation was on the art of Josef Albers, focusing on his experimentation and theories on color.
While living in Europe, I studied at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere, the Academie Julian, and the Sorbonne in Paris. I also studied at the University of Pisa at Viareggio, Italy. My life has been enriched by my travels, which have afforded me the opportunity to view the works of the major art museums of the wo
For a number of years I wrote as an art expert for the Annual Edition of the Encyclopedia Americana. I reported on the major exhibitions in American art museums - as well as other museum news. Additional, I covered the highest priced art sales at American auction houses.
Born in Texas, I have spent most of my adult life in New York City.
