March Avery Cavanaugh (New York, b. 1932) oil on canvas modernist New York cityscape painting depicting a bird's-eye view of snowy Central Park in winter with the Manhattan skyline rendered in shades of blue and purple in the distance, 1996. Signed and dated "MARCH AVERY '96" lower right. Inscribed "'View from the Museum of Natural History - Winter' / ('Central Park - Winter') /  by March Avery 34 x 46 1996" to back of stretcher. Housed in a black and silvered modernist frame. Canvas: 34" H x 46" W. Frame: 41 3/4" H x 53 1/2" W.

Biographical note: "March Avery's paintings follow the colorist tradition set forth by her father, Milton Avery, relying on a sophisticated palette of evocative colors to render the simplified child-like forms that characterize her scenes of life. Avery knew at an early age that she would be a painter. She never considered anything else. Trained by her famous father and surrounded by other artists who were her father's friends, such as Mark Rothko, Adolf Gottlieb, Barnett Newman, Byron Brown, and Marsden Hartley, she developed her talent. For years she painted side-by-side with her father. She is, however, her own unique person with her own style. Her work has a matter-of-fact directness that is all her own."

Painting in excellent condition. Negligible black specks to sky, upper right, possibly inherent. Frame with peeling and losses to silver.
