Reclusive and dedicated, Amanda Snyder produced hundreds of artworks during her career. Her early representational paintings grew increasingly modernist, influenced by Cezanne, Picasso, and van Gogh. Working from her home, she befriended several of Oregon's leading artists, especially C. S. Price and Charles Heaney, and exchanged letters and Christmas cards with French artist Georges Rouault. She had 32 one-woman exhibitions, including two major exhibitions at the Portland Art Museum. A lover of the "simple life," her home inspired her and is reflected in her favorite subjects. The exhibition presents 74 works by this Northwest original.
