Bonnie Harris (1870-1962)

A resident of Hyde Park for 45 years, Bonnie Harris was a self-taught artist who began painting at 79. She had painted almost uninterruptedly until her death at the age of 91. Soon after her first attempts at painting, the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Corcoran Gallery, and the Walker Art Center exhibited her paintings and collages. The works on display in this exhibition included scenes recalled from the artist’s childhood and youth as well as window views she had painted while living in Chicago, Minneapolis, Washington and rural Colorado. Her works done in the medium of casein pain, used bold colors reflecting a vision of a highly poetic everyday world. This exhibition, organized by Eileen M. Murray, was made possible thanks to the support of the Asher family in Washington, D.C.
