Although known primarily as one of the leading and most influential art dealers to champion Abstract Expressionism, Betty Parsons was a highly accomplished artist who expanded upon the canon with her original and captivating paintings, sculptures, and works on paper. Parsons participated in numerous gallery and museum shows during her lifetime, despite her artworks often being overshadowed by her career as an art dealer. In the past decades since her death, however, her artistic triumphs have been the focus of multiple solo exhibitions and scholarly articles. Her artistic virtuosity finally has been recognized, and Parsons has emerged as an artist who transcended the often uncompromising principles that governed many movements of post-war art. Her work may be found in numerous public collections, including the Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill, New York; The High Museum, Atlanta, Georgia; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.
