Artist of the moment…….Agnes Weinrich

 

 

 

Agnes Weinrich was painter renown for her modernist and abstract style. Agnes Weinrich was born in Des Moines County, Iowa in the year 1873. Her parents were immigrants from Germany and were very successful as farmers in America.

Her father was able to retire from farming and move to the city. Her father also started to visit Germany and acquaint himself with his old relatives. Weinrich’s father passed away, and each of his children inherited enough money to live out the rest of their lives without taking a job. Her father must have been quite a farmer!

Weinrich graduated from Burlington Collegiate Institute. The artist also attended the Art Student’s League of Chicago in addition to studying with painter Charles Hawthorne.

The artist began her career as an Impressionistic painter. Later in her career as she became an active printmaker, Weinrich would focus on color and flat images that can remind one of Alex Katz.

Agnes Weinrich passed away at the age of 73 years of age in 1946.

Price range information: The artist worked in oils, pastels, crayons, and as a woodblock printmaker. Works range from $3,000 to $30,000.

The later works of Weinrich are wonderful examples of a mixture of painting schools including Cubism and Abstraction.
