Nell Blaine

Nell Blaine was a member of the Second Generation of the New York School who kept cropping up tangentially in the pages of the epic Ninth Street Women. Unfortunately, coming off the heels of that well written and researched book, this retrospective of Blaine’s life falls flat, the lifeless writing leaves much to be desired. Great for the color plates of her work, but you’re left wanting a bouncier text that shines a clear spotlight into her life and artistic process.
