Artist of the moment…..Mary Elizabeth Price

 

Mary Elizabeth Price was an American Impressionist painter renown for her paintings of lush floral still life works often times working with silver and gold leaf.

Mary Elizabeth Price was born in Martinsburg, West Virginia in the year 1877. Her family were Quakers.

For her artistic education Price studied at the Pennsylvania Schoool of Industrial Arts and the Pennsylvania Academy of Arts.

For much of professional career Price was based out of New York City.

If you enjoy the work of price be sure and check out my favorite floral artist, Robert Kushner, who also paints on screens occasionally. Kushner also uses gold leaf, silver leaf, palladium leaf, and glitter in his art. Mary Price would use screens and mirrors actually made by her brother Rueben Price.

Price range information: Mary Price worked in oils and watercolors with prices ranging from $10,000 to $75,000.
