Flora Crockett

Flora Crockett (1892–1979) was an American painter whose non-objective abstractions were said by New York Times critic, Roberta Smith, to be "elegant, knowing and at ease, made by a adroit hand." Known for working compositions having layered design elements in exuberant color, she worked independently, without reference to the popular art movements of her time. She did not repeat herself correspondingly that, as one critic said, "everything feels discovered." Soon after her marriage in 1918, Crockett traveled to France taking into account her sculptor husband Edmond Quattrocchi. There, she studied at Académie Moderne in Paris and in 1929 was appointed its director. In 1937, newly divorced, she returned from Paris. Three years progressive she rented an apartment upon 14th Street at 8th Avenue in New York where she lived and painted the blazing of her life. Throughout her career she supported herself by taking a variety of jobs, including statute for the Federal Art Project and in clash industries. In her free time both during her functional years and after retirement, she produced a body of do something which was qualified for its excellence after her death.
