Jean Marshall Meisel

b. 1931

Meisel developed her eye by spending time at The Phillips Collection looking especially at paintings of Nicolas de Stael, Milton Avery, Albert Ryder and Arthur Dove. Jean studied with Helene Herzbrun at American University, and prominent 20th century Washington artists Gene Davis, and Anne Truitt.  Her early paintings, mostly seascapes, still life, and figurative work developed into abstraction following a formative trip to Itay in 1986.

Works are held in numerous prominent private and corporate collections.
