Edith Branson (1891 - 1976)
An American Modernist

Edith Branson was an American modernist painter who created her own interpretation of the multitude
of avant-garde movements that blossomed in Europe and New York City in the early 20th century.

She was a significant contributor to the New York art scene both through her numerous exhibitions and
in the roles she served as a director of the Society of Independent Artists (1934-1940) and as one of
the officers of Emily Francis' Contemporary Arts Gallery. Branson exhibited nearly every year from
1921-1941 with the Society of Independent Artists, as well as with the Municipal Art Galleries (1938).
She was also given a solo show at the Contemporary Arts Gallery (1935), joining such other promising
new artists as Mark Rothko (1933) and Alice Neel (1938) both of whom would also receive their first
one-person show at the Contemporary Arts Gallery.More >


Previously kept in family hands over the last 70 years, Edith Branson's paintings are currently being
reintroduced to American collectors. It is hoped that the reputation she acquired while active will be
recaptured and that her position among many other important women artists of that era can be reestablished.
Blue Heron Fine Art is pleased to offer the following fine examples of her work. If you have any questions,
