The rediscovery of the paintings of Vivian Springford (1913-2003) has introduced a wonderful new voice to the resounding chorus of the New York School of twentieth century painting. Daughter of a wealthy New York executive, Springford attended Manhattan’s elite Spence School. But instead of attending one of the prestigious colleges to receive an education in the liberal arts, or perhaps marrying into another kind of respectability, she went directly from Spence to the Art Students League. And thereafter, Springford never swerved from her commitment to her art, or to the world of Manhattan’s avantgarde. Her entire career unfolded in the very center of the bohemian scene of the 1950s into the 1980s.
