Description: Substantial and period Synchromy Movement oil painting, titled Abstract Derivation, shows paint brushes and vases. By Louise Miller Clark (American, 20th Century). Louise was an active California Modernist who lived in Modesto, California and exhibited in many exhibitions. During the 1940s she signed her work Louise Miller withe a pallet and two brushes monogram and in the late 1940s Louise Miller Clark with a pallet and to brushes, and throughout the 50s-60s Signed "Louise Miller Clark" lower right. Her work ranged from Industrial abstracts to Symbolist and Synchromy style. Many California exhibitions featured her works, Modonna Art festival, Lodi Grape and National Wine Show 1962. Clark's work is exemplary of synchromism, which became the first American avant-garde art movement to receive international attention. Founded in 1912, it was based on the idea that colors are like music scales and can be orchestrated in the same harmonious way that a composer arranges notes in a symphony. In 1912 Stanton MacDonald-Wright and his colleague Morgan Russell invented the term Synchromy to refer to their experiments in making abstract compositions whose primary emphasis was on color. Although both artists were inspired by Cubism, they set out to reassert the importance of color in relationship to line in the creation of form. Unframed.
