Johnston, a UC Berkeley graduate painter and printmaker, launched her career as a successful artist with an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1951. That same year, the artist came to Los Angeles to teach at the Chouinard Art Institute. National and international exhibitions followed, and extended itineraries in India and Europe yielded rich visual experiences. Johnston began to experiment with a variety of media, each showcasing her penchant for dramatic jewel-like color, expressed with bold lines and complex imagery reflecting the influence of her world travels and the art of Persia and India.

Ynez Johnston’s work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

Hughes Estate Sales is pleased to offer the following works, among others, for sale at our upcoming October 2 – 4, 2015 at Altadena Showroom Sale.
