Description

Born in Tennessee, Amanda Snyder moved to Oregon as a young child. She attended classes at the Museum Art School (now the Pacific Northwest College of Art) and, from the beginning, favored roughly textured layers of paint. She met C.S. Price shortly after he arrived in Portland in 1929 and was greatly influenced by his style. Although she painted clowns and religious subjects, Snyder focused most on her everyday surroundings: birds, still life compositions and the view of her own backyard. In this homage to C.S. Price, Snyder painted his worktable shortly after his death. Interestingly, the painting on the easel—of birds—appears to be a reference to her own art.
