    Art Brokerage: Sally Storch American Artist: Sally Storch comes from an artistic family background with roots in the Paris school of the early Twentieth Century. Arabian Princess and great aunt, Bertha Rihani, lived in and painted in Paris during the 1920's and kept the company Henri Matisse and in particular Kees Van Dongen. This school blossomed in America with Regionalism and naturalistic presentation of American life with artists like Edward Hopper, Thomas H. Benton and John Steuart Curry. These are the influential artists named by Storch and the nativist movement they brought to contemporary art is continued in her paintings. She combines this style with that of the Ash Can and Regionalist schools of New York where another aunt, Stephanie Stockton, attended the Art Students League and studied under John Steuart Curry. This New York look was different in that it broke away from the French Post-impressionist brightness and embraced the gritty world of the American city. These painters followed John Sloan's technique of watch your neighbors and Robert Henri's urgings to pay attention to everything you see. Storch successfully fuses the Ash Can style with the spirit of regionalism to create intense contemporary paintings which impel feelings of timelessness, nostalgia and romance. But the true driving force in Sally Storch's paintings is her ability as a storyteller. Everything, everyone comes to life in her mind and a pure vision of hereunto-unknown lives become real in her paintings. And it is inevitably a love story in the broadest sense of the term. It is this invitation to create a story which enhances the atmosphere of Sally's paintings. When she paints she believes the characters she has drawn. This truth makes her paintings sharp and powerful. Listings wanted.
