Marie-Louise Garnavault [1911-2012]


[From the Community Collection, a public gallery of art in Agincourt, Iowa]

GARNAVAULT, Marie-Louise (1911-2012)

Portrait of a Woman


oil on canvas / 18 inches by 15 inches

Writer, poet, art teacher, and artist, Garnavault was a reclusive French artist who’s paintings only came to light recently after her death. It came as a great surprise to find a large inventory inside a Montmartre studio dedicated to her two favourite 20th Century artists Marc Chagall (1887-1985) and Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920).

The most recent addition to the Community Collection comes from an anonymous donor, in memory of Mary Grace Tabor [1920-2012].
