Peggy Bacon - American - Night On The Town
Lithograph
$900 unframed - Edition: 250

´╗┐Peggy Bacon was born in Ridgefield, Connecticut. She studied at the Art Students League with John Sloan, Kenneth Hayes Miller, and George Bellows. Just as these realist artists, Bacon
painted aspects of ordinary life, but she treated these subjects with a touch of humor and in a more modern style.

Bacon created paintings and prints, and wrote poetry and novels. She is known to many as the illustrator of more than 64 children's books, including The Lionhearted Kitten (1927). Her satirical sketches of the New York art world in the 1920s and 1930s also won her fame. Many of these drawings appeared in The New Yorker and Town and Country magazines.

Bacon's prints are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Brooklyn Museum.
