Peggy Bacon (1895-1987)
Peggy Bacon was born May 2, 1895 in Ridgefield, Connecticut. She exhibited an early interest in art, and was a student in the Art Students League in New York from October 1915 to May 1920. There she learned from John Sloan, George Bellows and Robert Henri and other artists teaching and working in New York at the time. She actually taught herself the technique of making drypoints and became so engrossed in this technique that it became her primary medium. It was through printmaking that her art developed its own characteristic style-- that of transforming appearances or people for a humorous yet insightful effect.
