Mary Pratt (Estate)
I’ve never wanted to paint what I did not know - intimately and sensuously. The look of things, the feel of things - their ability to arouse me - has led me along the paths you see in my pictures
MARY PRATT (1935-2018) was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick in 1935. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Mount Allison University in 1961.
