RICE, Anne Estelle

Anne Estelle Rive (1877-1959) was born in Philadelphia. She met the Scottish painter John Duncan Fergusson during the summer of 1907 at Paris-Plage, a resort, and Fergusson encouraged her to become a painter. Initially she created compositions with a palette and brushwork recalling Manet and the Impressionists. Increasingly exposed to Post-Impressionism and Fauvism, her work was shown alongside those of the Scottish Colourists. Rice and Fergusson became active collaborators in Murry’s literary and arts quarterly Rhythm. From the 1920s Rice exhibited at the Leicester Galleries and the Wildenstein Gallery.
