The following introductory narrative was provided by Artnet: 


In the 1950's, Nell Blaine was considered a leader amongst her fellow New York artists. Life Magazine named her one of the five leading female artists in 1957. She was part of the American Abstract Artists and a founding member of the Jane Street Gallery, an early artists' cooperative in New York. After graduating from the Richmond School of Art, Blaine moved to New York to study painting with Hans Hoffman and printmaking at the Atelier 17 print shop with Stanley William Hayter. Sadly though, she was stuck with bulbar polio in 1959 and told she would never paint again.
