This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Ann Hunt Spencer was a diverse artist and draughtsman who produced many graphite drawings portraying people and places that she saw as she traveled throughout Europe and the Middle East. She also spent much of her career as a teacher.

Many of her drawings depictviews or segments that she observed from asketching trip in the 1930s.She was awarded a prize in 1937( Kociuszko Fund) in the form of a traveling scholarship, and this gave Spencer the opportunity to study the landscape, architecture and people of foreign places. Among her subjects are pictorial records of Mideasternbazaars, heavily populated streets with Arabsgoing about their business, hillside European towns, and picturesque scenes of Munich and Paris.

Spencer painted with oils, and some of her landscapes were tonalist in style. Her portrait and figure works reflect a command of technique that enabled her to establish her subjects in space and atmosphere.

She was very prolific. One portfolio of her work done in the 1940s was fashion drawings, many of them rich in color and activity. Her fashion work is typical of the stylized high fashion of the 1940s.

Ann Hunt Spencer was born in Ontario, Canada, January 30,1914. She studied at the National Academy of Design with J Farnsworth and continued her studies at Sara Lawrence College. In 1938 she exibited at Kohn Gallery New York City. Her work was represented at Universal Plastic Corporation New York City.

She was listed as a WPA artist in 1947.
