Biography   Dorothy Hood


Abstract Surrealist painter Dorothy Hood, was born in Bryan, Texas in 1919, and her life and work embraced much of the 20th Century in Mexico and the United States where she was regarded as a pioneer because of her exceptional use of color and daring techniques. She was a prolific painter who created many large-scale canvases washed with intense colors. Other mediums for her were ink drawing, printing and collages.

Hood traveled to Mexico in 1941 after studies at the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, Rhode Island, and Art Students League, New York City, where, in her early to mid-twenties, she became part of the circle of leading artists and writers of Europe and Mexico. She married Bolivian composer Velasco Maidana.
