Nell Blaine "Abstraction with Blue, Red and Yellow" Oil on Canvas, USA, 1944
Blaine's work had begun as "tightly realist" but transformed to an abstract style, which was inspired by artists such as Piet Mondrian and Fernand Leger. Blaine later explained, "[By 1944], I'm developing so fast in my tastes and I become more abstract all the time to the point of great purification....". Blaine's works are included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, The Brooklyn Museum, National Academy of Design, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Rose Art Museum, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
