Eugenie Silverman Baizerman never sold a painting in her short lifetime, but her paintings have been regularly exhibited and praised in the years since her death. Baizerman studied art with private tutors and at the Odessa Art School before her family immigrated to the US, and continued studying at the National Academy of Design and the Educational Alliance settlement house after their arrival in New York. After marrying sculptor Saul Baizerman, she travelled with her husband to France and Italy, beginning to paint in a more dynamic, impressionist style with short strokes of intense colors. Her subjects were usually flowers, fruit, or nudes, although towards the end of her life, she painted Arizona landscapes. During her lifetime, she had several shows at the Artists Gallery: two one-woman shows and a husband-and-wife show, as well as a retrospective in 1961, after her death. Her work is also in the collections of the Whitney Museum and MOMA.
