Peggy Bacon

Peggy Bacon was born of artist parents and studied at the Art Students League in New York with Jonas Lie, Kenneth Hayes Miller, John Sloan, George Bellows, and others. She received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1934 and was married to the artist, Alexander Brook. Bacon showed a keen sense of perception and wit in her nearly 200 compositions of graphic work between 1918 and 1972. She has also been noted for her satire and caricatures in such books as Off with Their Heads, and Cat Calls. When asked why she included cats in her work, her answer was concise and affectionate, "I love cats. I was brought up with cats...Cats were the only pets I had. I drew them constantly. I loved them dearly and enjoyed them as personalities and as models." Peggy Bacon's work is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan, Boston, and Whitney Museums, and was a teacher at the New School for Social Research in New York.
