IMAGE: 21.75" wide by about 14.5" high. In the frame, this measures 29.25" x 23.25".

After attending the University of California at Berkeley for graduate work in the visual arts, she furthered her studies at the Art Students' League in NYC, and at the Alliance Francaise and at the L'Académie de la Grande Chaumière, both in Paris. Her first exhibit was at the Galerie Henri Tronche on Rue de La Boétie, Paris.
Back in California in 1956, she began displaying her work at Gumps gallery in San Francisco, eventually becoming the longest continuing artist to display art with Gumps, surviving eight directors. Her big break came in 1961, when her show at San Francisco's Legion of Honor was described as being "the most delightful show of the year" by San Francisco Chronicle art critic Alfred Frankenstein. Since then, her artwork has been shown in galleries across the globe, including the Performing Arts Library and Museum in San Francisco; the American Library in Bucharest, Romania; the American Embassy in Bonn, Germany; the Curaçao Museum in Netherlands Antilles; Amerika Haus Exhibit in Vienna, Austria; and Yoseido Gallery, Tokyo, Japan.
She was commissioned to paint for the San Francisco Symphony, the New Haven Symphony, The Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco, The Port of San Francisco, and Royal Viking Cruise lines. Guy was the house artist for the San Francisco Opera and the San Francisco Ballet until her death. When Queen Elizabeth II visited San Francisco with Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh in the 1980s, she was presented with a Betty Guy painting as a gift from the Port of San Francisco.Other prominent recipients of Betty Guy's work include Gianni Versace, Placido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti and John Steinbeck. Betty Guy traveled and completed paintings in France, Germany, Japan, Israel, Austria, Great Britain, Chile, China and many other countries throughout the world. She dined with celebrities -- artists, poets, authors and playwrights to include John Steinbeck, Arthur Miller and Saul Bellow. And she was honored with a U.
Department of State endorsement as a notable American artist. Betty Guy died at the age of ninety-five in 2016 at her home in Bernal Heights which had a spectacular view overlooking her native San Francisco. She is remembered for her beautiful ability to "get" the San Francisco look-- foggy vistas and obscure definition, putting you in the heart of the city.This item is in the category "Art\Art Prints".
