Mildred Thompson

Mildred Jean Thompson (March 12, 1936 – September 1, 2003)was an American artist who worked in the media of painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and photography. She was also a writer and, beginning in 1987, was an associate editor for the magazine Art Papers in Atlanta, Georgia. Critics have related her art to West African textiles and Islamic architecture; they have also cited German Expressionism, music (both American jazz and classical European music) and Thompson’s readings in astronomy, spiritualism and metaphysics as important artistic influences.
