Dorothy Cantor

Dorothy Cantor is a visual artist. Dorothy Cantor has had several gallery and museum exhibitions, including at the The Andy Warhol Museum. She was a classmate and close friend of Andy Warhol – no introductions needed – and also of Philip Pearlstein, who went on to be one of the country’s most prominent figurative painters. In 1950, she moved to New York and married Pearlstein; the couple still live there in a classic artists’ loft. Her painting is in a show called Pearlstein, Warhol, Cantor: From Pittsburgh to New York, at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, where it’s one of the most exciting and unexpected pieces.

This lovely picture by Dorothy Cantor is dated 1949-50, painted when she was a student in the art department at what is now called Carnegie Mellon University, in Pittsburgh.
