4500 USD


Edith Vonnegut

Nude on Tuft of Earth Toile

Oil on Linen, 2002

26” x 28”


Edith Vonnegut is an American painter. Her work—most of which juxtaposes heavenly beings, heroic women and mundane activities, has been showcased at galleries across the United States, and is featured in the book Domestic Goddesses. 


Edith Vonnegut takes issue with traditional art imagery in which women are shown as weak and helpless. Through paintings that harken in style and tone to the works of the classical masters, she skillfully -- and humorously - -illustrates her maxim that the lives of mothers and homemakers are filled with vital decisions and challenges that should be portrayed with the dignity they deserve.  She expresses the importance of traditional roles of women so cleverly and with such joy that her message and images will be forever emblazoned on our collective psyche.

She is currently working on a body of work entitled ‘The First 100 Days’. Beginning January 20, producing a body of work following President Trump’s First 100 days, ending April 30, To be exhibited in August on Cape Cod.
