Description:
PROVENSEN, ALICE. B. 1917. Oil and ink on paper, "Expatriates: Americans Abroad," being an illustration for My Fellow Americans: A Family Album (San Diego: Browndeer Press, 1995), 238 x 584 mm, identified and signed "Alice Provensen" in pencil beneath the image, matted and framed. Provenance: Nancy Willard (gift of the artist). This painting depicts writers James Baldwin, Ezra Pound, T. S. Eliot, Henry James and Gertrude Stein, painters John Singer Sargent, James Mc Neill Whistler and Mary Cassatt, actress Grace Kelly and the Duchess of Windsor with chanteuse Josephine Baker floating above in her famous banana skirt. As the clouds above Cassatt in her boat explain, these Americans went to Europe in "pursuit of artistic expression in exotic places" and "the escape from racism." Alice Provenson met her husband Martin (1916-1987) when they were both working in the animation studios in Hollywood—she with Walter Lantz and he with Walt Disney. After they married in 1944, they collaborated on many successful children's books including the Newberry Medal winner and Caldecott Honor Book A Visit to William Blake's Inn (1981) by Nancy Willard and the Caldecott Medal Winner The Glorious Flight (1983). Since his death, Alice Provenson has continued to produce distinguished picture books on her own including the patriotic My Fellow Americans.
