Quita Brodhead

Quita Brodhead

American 1901–2002

Quita Brodhead was an artist that remained au courant throughout her life. She was independent and colorful, following her own path. In her works, Quita harnessed and transformed color into a malleable form. Rather than painting subjects in color, she turned her subjects into color. Interested in the world around her and the future, many of her works were inspired by discoveries in science, math, and space travel. Her American education and exposure to the European Modernists shaped her abstract œuvre.
