DESCRIPTION

Peggy Bacon & Her Circle is on view at the Susan Teller Gallery from July 13 through August 18, 2011.

There are paintings and works on paper from 1919 to 1952.

Bacon attended the Art Students League from 1917 to 1920. It was there she met Alexander Brook; they were married from 1920 to 1940. She studied with George Bellows, Kenneth Hayes Miller, and John Sloan. Bacon taught at the League in 1935-36 and from 1948 to 1952.

For most of her career Bacon lived in the East Village or Greenwich Village neighborhoods of New York City. She spent extended periods in Woodstock, NY, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and the coastal region of Maine, to which she moved in 1961. Many of her fellow students and neighbors became close colleagues, including Isabel Bishop, Minna Citron, Wanda Gag, Kai Klitgaard, Yasuo Kuniyoshi and his wife Katherine Schmidt, Reginald Marsh, Raphael Soyer, Dorothy Varian, and Marguerite Zorach.

Her book of caricatures, Off with Their Heads, was published in 1934.

In Close Quaters, the figure at the sink is a slef portrait.
