Artist Information

Born in Chicago in 1896, Charmion von Wiegand spen...

Born in Chicago in 1896, Charmion von Wiegand spent the majority of her childhood traveling, due to her father’s career as a journalist and editor for Hearst Newspapers. In 1915, she settled in New York City and attended Barnard College for a year before enrolling at Columbia University. With her father’s encouragement, she took classes at the School of Journalism while nurturing a growing interest in art history. Von Wiegand married and moved to Connecticut after college but began to grow increasingly restless as a housewife. When her husband moved to Germany in 1925, the couple divorced. That same year, during a session with her psychoanalyst, von Wiegand recalled childhood memories of “colors I had seen in Chinatown . . . in San Francisco. . . the confetti (pink and green) and the red dragons and firecrackers.”[i] This vivid memory of a city she loved led her to the realization that she wanted to be an artist. Soon after, von Wiegand bought a set of paints and with the help of her ex-husband (who remained a close friend for years) set up a studio in Greenwich Village.

In the late 1920s, von Wiegand was teaching herself how to paint, but her primary career remained journalism. In 1929, she secured a position in Moscow as a foreign correspondent for Hearst, the only woman to do so. While in Russia, von Wiegand continued to advance her artistic skills, primarily in the form of landscape painting. In 1932, she returned to New York and married Russian émigré Joseph Freeman, who co-founded and edited the leftist journal New Masses. Von Wiegand began writing art criticism for New Masses as well as for other publications, including New Theatre, ARTnews, and Arts Magazine. When the Abstract American Artists (AAA) held their inaugural exhibition, von Wiegand reviewed it. An early champion of abstract art, von Wiegand became close friends with AAA founder Carl Holty. Her social circle at this time also included John Graham as well as Mark Tobey, who shared her interest in the convergence of art and spirituality.

In 1941, Holty introduced von Wiegand to Piet Mondrian, who would have a profound impact on her art. Prior to their meeting, she had seen Mondrian’s work at an exhibition and had found it too “mathematical.” But after they met, she became “a total convert to his way of thinking and seeing. Our contact was a rare experience which only occurs once or twice in a lifetime and from that first meeting, my eyes were transformed.”[ii] She went on to interview Mondrian in connection with an article she was writing for The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism. This article, “The Meaning of Mondrian” (1943) was the first in-depth study of Mondrian written in the United States.[iii] The two artists became close friends; through Mondrian, von Wiegand re-kindled her interest in Theosophy, reading Madame Blavatsky’s famous book on the subject, The Secret Doctrine. She also stopped painting for eighteen months in order to embark on an extended study of neoplasticism. During this time, she concluded that Mondrian’s art was intuitive rather than analytical, an insight that challenged preconceptions of his painting and continues to influence how Mondrian is understood within the history of art. Von Wiegand’s realization also led her to become fascinated with the spiritual potential of neoplastic theory.

 

After the death, in 1944, of her dear friend and mentor, von Wiegand decided to paint full time. In her artwork, she incorporated Mondrian’s iconic grid but rejected the constraints of pure neoplasticism and embraced a wide range of influences including surrealism and German expressionism. An open-minded, versatile artist, von Wiegand experimented with various artistic practices and styles, using the surrealist technique of automatism, creating biomorphic abstractions, and working in collage. She became a member of the American Abstract Artists, exhibiting regularly with the group from 1948 through the 1950s and serving as its president from 1951 to 1953.

In the late 1940s, Ibram Lassaw (also a member of the AAA) gave her a translation of The Secret of the Golden Flower: A Chinese Book of Life, and von Wiegand immersed herself in a study of Buddhist art. She began incorporating forms such as stupas and mandalas into her paintings. Her search for the sacred and the transcendent ultimately led her to Tibetan Buddhism, and in the mid-1960s, she met Khyongla Rato Rinpoche, a “reincarnate lama and scholar of the Gelugpa order,”[iv] who had fled Tibet and recently arrived in New York. They soon became close friends. Khyongla Rato mentored her in Buddhism, and she aided in the writing of his biography, My Life and Lives. Under his guidance, von Wiegand embarked on a course of spiritual study in the tradition of Mahayana Buddhism. Her travels in the 1960s and 1970s took her to Tibet and India, where she had an audience with the Dalai Lama, living in exile in Dharamsala. While von Wiegand would regard all of her art as spiritual, her work from these later decades is overtly so; many works incorporate metaphysical images and symbols drawn from Theosophical prismatic color charts, Chinese astrology, tantric yoga, and of course, Buddhism.

Von Wiegand’s reputation continued to grow throughout the 1970s. In 1978, she was the subject of a PBS documentary titled The Circle of Charmion von Wiegand, with a score by Philip Glass. In 1980, von Wiegand was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In October of that same year, she appeared on the cover of ArtNews as part of a group of twenty women artists for the magazine’s article on gender in the art world, “Where are the Great Men Artists?” In 1982, the Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach, Florida organized her first retrospective, publishing a small catalogue to accompany the exhibition. She died the following year in New York City.

In the years following her death, von Wiegand’s paintings were included in numerous posthumous exhibitions throughout the 1980s. In 1998, Michael Rosenfeld Gallery became the sole representative of her estate, and since that time, the gallery has presented her work in multiple solo and group exhibitions. Most recently, von Wiegand has been a presence in several major exhibitions, including: The Third Mind: American Artists Contemplate Asia (Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, 2009); Back to the Future (Loyola University Museum of Art, Chicago, 2009); Grains of Emptiness: Buddhist Inspired Contemporary Art (Rubin Museum of Art, New York, 2010); and Constructive Spirit: Abstract Art in South and North America (Newark Museum, New Jersey, 2010). Work by von Wiegand is currently on view in the exhibitions Seeing America at the Newark Museum; “Non-Brand (非品牌),” curated by Cai Guo-Qiang for Artistic License: Six Takes on the Guggenheim Collection at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; and Women Take the Floor at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Charmion von Wiegand is represented in numerous museum collections including the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy (Andover, MA); Albright-Knox Art Gallery (Buffalo, NY); Arithmeum, University of Bonn (Germany); Brooklyn Museum (NY); Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburgh, PA); The Cleveland Museum of Art (OH); Fondazione Marguerite Arp (Locarno, Switzerland); The Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, NY); The Museum of Modern Art (New York, NY); Seattle Art Museum (WA); Smithsonian American Art Museum (Washington, DC); Walker Art Center (Minneapolis, MN); and the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York, NY).
