Luce Center Label

Lucile Blanch met her husband, Arnold Blanch, while studying at the Minneapolis School of Fine Arts. She then attended the Art Students League in New York and began a lifelong friendship with Eugenie Gershoy. Moving to Woodstock in 1923, Blanch ran a small open-air cafeteria with her husband, made items to sell at a local craft market, and painted images of circus performers. This sculpture shows Blanch at a moment of intense concentration. She sits with a palette balanced on her legs and stares at the imaginary work in front of her.
