Gregory Ivy was the first art department chair at UNC-Greensboro and founder of the Weatherspoon Art Museum in 1941. He was greatly influenced by the Transcendental Painting Group (TPG), a relatively short lived movement with the intention "to carry painting beyond the appearance of the physical world, through new concepts of space, color, light, and design, to imaginative realms that are idealistic and spiritual."

Good estate condition; not examined out of frame.
