JEANNETTE MAXFIELD LEWIS (1894-1982)
CURRENTLY ON VIEW AT OUR CARMEL GALLERY LOCATION. ALL WORKS AVAILABLE INDIVIDUALLY.
Lewis began experimenting with printmaking under Armin Hansen in 1931, first with small drypoints, later moving into etching. Early on her subject matter was very similar to Hansen’s namely, ocean scenes, harbors, and fishermen. Over the years, her inspirations came more from her travels to Europe and Mexico; studies of village and town life, human activity, and architecture.
