Ruth Wall Works Biography

RUTH WALL

Ruth A. Wall was born in Wyoming in 1917 but moved to a homestead on an Indian reservation in Utah as a child. After graduating from high school at age 16 she left home to attend college, graduating at age 20 and began teaching high school at age 21. She then moved to Los Angeles where she became an Army materials inspector during WWII.

In 1950 she entered the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco, studying there until leaving for Paris in 1952 where she moved into the Academie Frochot. Returning to the CSFA in 1955 she worked as an artist. Most of her work in printmaking was done in 1952. They are, for the most part, gestural, Abstract Expressionist lithographs.
