Artist of the moment…….Cameron Booth

 

Cameron Booth was the teacher that influenced the previous post, Phyllis Wiener, to move to Abstract painting. Cameron Booth was born in Erie, Pennsylvania in the year 1892. The artist was influenced by viewing the famous Armory show of 1913, the first showing of Abstract and Modernist art in the States.

Booth was a professor at the Minneapolis School of Art.

Booth also studied with Hans Hoffman.

Cameron Booth passed away in 1980.

Much of his impressionist style works deal with the landscapes of his surroundings in Minnesota. These works include small countryside farms and small mining towns of the past.

I enjoy the landscapes of this artist even more so than his abstract works. Booth was great at seeing and painting simple shapes that easily recognizable from a distance.
