Details:On view at the Portland Museum of Art June 14, 2024, through February 2, 2025, Biting, never Bitter represents a timely and noteworthy solo presentation of Peggy Bacon’s wry observations of her social, professional, and artistic networks during the 1920s and 1930s. Featuring more than 60 prints, drawings, paintings, and pastels, Peggy Bacon: Biting, never Bitter is a testament to her enduring influence on the artistic landscapes in Maine, New York, and beyond. Born in Ridgefield, Connecticut, in 1895, Peggy Bacon (1895–1987) began her formal art education in 1913 at the School of Applied Arts for Women in New York, and later at the Art Students League of New York until 1920, receiving instruction from Kenneth Hayes Miller and prominent Ashcan School artists John Sloan and George Bellows. Bacon built upon the Ashcan School’s portrayals of the grit and reality of everyday life, bringing her own sharp humor and distinctively modern style to subjects in print, paint, and word.
