(1896 - 1968)
Arnold A. Blanch was active/lived in New York, California, Minnesota. Arnold Blanch is known for landscape, genre, figure and surrealist painting.
Born in Mantorville, Minnesota, Arnold Blanch was a painter of scenes
of social-realist American life with mystical overtones and a child-like seeming
style. He was also a highly respected teacher, lecturer and
visiting critic and was a spokesman for the art colony in Woodstock,
New York. He was married to Lucile Blanch.
Unlike many of
his generation, he seemed disinterested in avant-garde styles and held
to his own approach with canvases that were happy and somewhat romantic
in subject matter. In the 1930s, he was a muralist for the
Federal Art Project and did work in post offices in Fredonia, New York
and Norwalk, Connecticut.
