Pat Steir

Born 1940, Newark, NJ. Lives and works in New York.



With a career that has spanned over half a century, Pat Steir is a leading force in the development of Postmodern abstraction. Her paintings and prints exist in conversation with various art historical movements—from Abstract Expressionism to traditional Chinese painting. Working with these influences, the artist creates meditative, often large-scale pieces that frequently reference the natural world.
