Description

A fiery image composed of translucent, blazing tones, layered one atop the other in a delicate array, makes up the bulk of Doris Meyer Chatham's "Souvenir". Suggestions of a maple tree turning its leaves in autumn or the sunset seen through time-warped glass are illuminated by Chatham's keen sense of balance and movement.

After Doris and her husband Heinrich Meyer divorced in early 1955, she started driving to parts unknown and ended up in the Pacific Northwest. In Seattle she continued her studies of printmaking at the University of Washington under Glenn Alps, and, following graduation, she landed a job teaching art at Everett Junior College. In the late 1950s she travelled to France to study printmaking with Stanley William Hayter who had returned to Paris and re-opened Atelier 17 in 1950. She continued to correspond with Hayter throughout the fifties and sixties.
