Arthur N. Christie (New York/New Jersey/Pennsylvania 1891-1980) was an
American modernist artist working primarily on the east coast. Christie studied art at the Pratt Institute of Art, New York, and later with Hans Hoffman in New York and Provincetown, Mass. Christie began doing abstract works in the early 1930s, and was a member of the American Abstract Artists group from 1937-1941. Works by Christie are rare, even his personal papers, which are held in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C., only contain a few gallery announcements, some original drawings, and some hand written notes quoting other American abstract artists.
This work is an gouache and ink on paper and dates from the 1930s.
