ALMA W. THOMAS (1891 - 1978)
Acrylic on cotton canvas, 1971. 457x610 mm; 18x24 inches. Signed and dated in acrylic, lower right recto. Signed, titled, numbered "(10)" and inscribed "1530 15th Street, N.W." in orange ink, verso.
Provenance: private collection, Washington, DC; thence by descent to a private collection.
Fall Atmosphere is a wonderful example of Alma Thomas' vertical stripe abstractions from the late 1960s and early 1970s. This study of light and color is distinguished by its palette of beautiful fall colors. A similar subject is found in the larger painting Breeze Rustling Through Fall Flowers, 1968, in the Phillips Collection, Washington, DC.
