Raymond Jonson does not have an image.
(Chariton, Iowa, 1891 - 1982, Albuquerque, New Mexico)
Worked Portland, Oregon, 1909-1910; Chicago, 1910-1924; Santa Fe, NM, 1924-1950; Albuquerque, NM, 1950-1982.
Inspired by what he called "natural rhythms" in the New Mexico landscape, Raymond Jonson created abstract works the 1920s and 1930s that were inspired by his drawings made in Sante Fe. He often deconstructed the lines and patterns in an analytical yet playful fashion.
Jonson was a member of the Transcendental Group, painters who sought to outstrip the social realism favored by the Ashcan School and other early modernists. They turned instead to nature and to progressively more abstract imagery for inspiration.
