Artistic Focus Dorr Bothwell produced some of the period’s most notable Surrealist work, including canvases with “remarkable, almost haunting, enigmatic landscapes,” close-up studies of fruits and plants with forced horizons, and a number of self-portraits using satirical symbols and a touch of whimsy. Her works reflect the Surrealist emphasis on directness, simplicity and power.
• In 1921, Bothwell attended the California School
of Fine Arts, where she studied with Gottardo Piazzoni.
