An accomplished American Modernist, Anne Ryan did not begin painting until her fifties; prior to that she had been a journalist and single mother who operated a restaurant in Greenwich Village to support her family.

In 1941 she enrolled in Stanley William Hayter’s printmaking workshop where she learned such techniques as etching, intaglio, monograph and woodcut. In Ibiza, Ryan’s linear rendering of buildings and boardwalk provide a strong backdrop for the curving forms of three female figures. Bold passages of white, yellow and red animate the predominately blue surface, suggesting the warm enviroment of a Mediterranean seaside town

Ryan participated in group exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Her work was admired by her New York contemporaries Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock and Hans Hofmann; after her death, Ryan was honored with a solo exhibition at the Betty Parsons Gallery which represented the Abstract Expressionists and championed innovative American artists.

Anne Ryan is listed in Who Was Who in American Art (Falk, 1999).
