Agnes Pelton (American, b. Germany, 1881–1961)
Sand Storm, 1932
Modernist painter Agnes Pelton believed that the world was a place of joy and peace. On a visit to the California desert she became enthralled by the quality of the light and the spaciousness of the skies, in the “especially bright spirit” of nature. This painting is a fine example of how she expressed that spirit in an enthralling composition.
