Frances Kornbluth
Am. 1920 - 2014 

Born in New York City in 1920, Frances Kornbluth graduated from Brooklyn College in 1940, attended the Brooklyn Museum Art School from 1955 to 1959 and received a master’s degree from the Pratt Institute in 1962. Over the years she has lived and worked on Long Island, Northeastern Connecticut and Monhegan Island in Maine, and has created a visual language that links the natural environment and abstraction in a variety of mediums. It was at the Brooklyn Museum Art School that Kornbluth met the late Reuben Tam, a noted American landscape artist and abstract painter, who became her mentor and a lifelong friend until his death in 1991.


Kornbluth’s works can be found in many private and public collections, and are regularly featured in galleries, juried competitions and exhibits worldwide. Major exhibits including her work have recently taken place at the University of Connecticut, the Bates College Museum of Art, the University of New England, the Pace Galleries and the Portland Museum of Art. Frances has won a number of awards for her art, including two Medals of Honor from the National Association of Women Artists and a Lifetime Achievement Award from Brooklyn College.
