Woman Reading a Bible

As an undergraduate at the University of Alabama in the 1950s, Miriam attended a Sunday School Class which met at Bryce Hospital for the mentally ill. This work, “Woman Reading a Bible” was done from scene of a resident at the hospital. You can see on the left side of the work the colors and shapes are chaotic, the right side more organized and hopeful and in the middle, the woman herself reflecting this contrast in herself.

This piece has remained in the artist’s personal collection but is now available to collectors for purchase.
