Maria Helena Vieira da Silva - new to me

Maria Helena Vieira da Silva is new to me,  I wish I'd found her work sooner. She studied painting with Leger and I think his influence shows in Composition at the Art Institute of Chicago.  This quote is from their label

When I paint a landscape or a seascape, I'm not very sure it's a landscape or a seascape. It's a thought form rather than a realistiic form."

Maria Elena Vieira da Silva, Composition, 1936/37, Oil on canvas
