Lee Hall was a North Carolina native and renowned Abstract Expressionist, whose muses were the American and Mediterranean landscapes. Her paintings, titled by the locale they represent, were rendered using sophisticated, muted color relationships and varied, textural painting techniques. Her poetic landscapes are iterations of the tradition of abstraction derived from meditations on nature, whose forbearers include a myriad of great minds from painters of the Sung Dynasty to modernist John Marin.

She leaves an enormous legacy as an exceptional painter as well as a respected educator and writer. Hall stood alongside the great artists of the New York School, earning herself representation at Betty Parsons’ famed New York gallery. Lee also served as president of the esteemed Rhode Island School of Design, and she has written a number of books, including biographies of Willem and Elaine DeKooning and Betty Parsons.

Lee Hall generously gave her estate to the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, and the proceeds from acquisitions of her work support the Education Department of the museum.
