Amaranth Ehrenhalt

(1928─present) As one of the few living abstract expressionists of the 1950’s, Ehrenhalt is actively working and producing fine art. After spending more than thirty years living in France and Italy, Ehrenhalt returned to the home base of the New York School in 2008. She lived in New York in the early ’50s and knew Al Held, Ronald Bladen, and Willem de Kooning. As an expatriate, Ehrenhalt exhibited with contemporaries such as Sam Francis, Joan Mitchell, Shirley Jaffe and others. Amaranth Ehrenhalt has established herself as a multifaceted artist with many solo and group exhibitions in Paris, Italy, New York, and California. Her work expands beyond the canvas to include drawings, prints, watercolors, tapestries, mosaics, murals, sculptures, poetry, prose and more. In order to experience the surprises and treasures of Amaranth Ehrenhalt’s art, it must be seen and digested by the viewer.
