Sally Michel

    AY-ver-ee    click to hear


A modernist painter and illustrator, Sally Michel, also known as Sally Avery, worked in an early modernist style.  She attended the Art Students League in New York and exhibited at the Child's Gallery in Boston.

In 1926, she married artist Milton Avery, and they worked together closely as each other's models and critic, and some persons have suggested that her husband, Milton Avery, used many of her ideas in his paintings.

In deference to raising her family, she put her husband's career ahead of her own but did sell illustrations to The New York Times.  After her husband's death, she has received increased recognition.
