Jessie Bone Charman
Jessie Bone Charman (1895-1986) was an American artist best known for painting expressive still-life and abstract watercolors. Charman was largely inspired creatively by the artistic movements of the 1900s and 1910s. This period was marked by the Post-Impressionist style, which emerged as a reaction against Impressionists concern for the naturalistic depiction of light and color. Post-Impressionist artists used otherworldly colors and energetic brushstrokes and emphasized geometric forms in their compositions.
