Diana Postel

Diana Postel painted and exhibited for over 6 decades. She trained at the Art Institute of Chicago, and extensively with Norman Raeben, son of author/playwright Sholem Aleichem and a student of Robert Henri and George Luks. Her paintings are both vibrant and insouciant, with bold use of colors and placement of objects. Her work has been influenced by Milton Avery, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso.  With elements of abstraction that delineate the essence of a still life, figure or landscape in a poetic context, her work presents representational oils and mixed media works on paper.
