Irene Rice PEREIRA
Irene Rice Pereira (1902-1971) was an American abstract artist, poet, and philosopher who played a significant role in the development of modernism in the US. She is known for her work in the Geometric abstraction, Abstract expressionist, and lyrical abstraction genres, and for her use of principles of the Bauhaus school. Pereira's paintings and writings were influenced significantly by the complex intellectual currents of the 20th century. In 1953, the Whitney Museum gave her a retrospective alongside Loren MacIver, another pioneering prominent woman artist. Today, her art is continually shown in various institutions such as the Walters Art Museum, The Phillips Collection and the Metropolitan Museum.
