Doris Lee was one of the most successful artists of the Depression era. Lee’s work can be found in many public collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Phillips Collection, Washington, D.C., Cleveland Museum of Art, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, National Museum of Women in the Arts, and the Greenville County Museum of Art, Greenville, SC, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Rhode Island School of Design, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
An American Scene painter of realistic subjects in a style that combined Realism and Modernism, Lee portrayed the simple joys of American life in touching, nostalgic and sometimes fanciful ways. She combined the sophistication of her knowledge of pure abstraction with her love of American folk art to create her unique style.
