~  Ivan Le Lorraine Albright (1897-1983)  ~

         Ivan Albright was the son of Adam Emory Albright, a landscape painter. During World War I, he made medical drawings for a hospital in Nantes, France. This impacted the approach that he later developed, a realist style that depicted aging flesh in meticulous detail. Albright style is highly individualistic and he is generally considered to be an important Magic Realist. His brother, Marvin was also a painter and sculptor.
