Luce Center Label

Arnold Blanch studied at the Minneapolis School of Fine Arts, then at New York’s Art Students League, where he met Eugenie Gershoy. He joined the artists’ colony at Woodstock in 1923 with his wife, Lucile Blanch, and stayed there for several years, painting still lifes and landscapes. He worked in New York City during the 1930s, along with many other artists from the colony, and painted murals for the Works Progress Administration. Gershoy modeled this piece while they were both at Woodstock in 1934. It shows Blanch, paintbrushes in hand, contemplating an invisible canvas.
