Artistic Focus Bonnie Beach Ryan’s paintings are rare due at least in part to her short lifespan. While Ryan’s oils reflect her careful attention to composition, what strikes the viewer most is the vibrancy of color infused in her paintings.
• Bonnie Beach Ryan was born Bonnie Lucille Beach in San Diego in 1901. Her
father, Albert H. Beach, was a prominent Los Angeles real estate developer,
and Bonnie attended the city’s elite St. Mary’s Academy
and Marlborough School for Girls.
