The works of abstract expressionist Yvonne Thomas (1913 - 2009) are prized for their lyrical and sophisticated exploration of color.

in 1948 Thomas enrolled as one of only five students in the “Subjects of the Artist” school, run by Robert Motherwell, Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, William Baziotes, David Hare and Clyfford Still. In the following years Thomas continued to study with Motherwell and Hans Hofmann. Her work is represented in the collections of numerous museums, including: the Fonds National d’Art Contemporai; Paris, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the National Gallery of Art; Washington D.C., the Riverside Museum and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; New York.
