The light in the latitudes of both her Illinoisan birthplace and that of sunny Florida where she wintered as a child appeared to have made a lasting impression on Alice Baber (1928-1982). Her early exposure to the luminous rays glinting off the contours of farm fields in Illinois, as well as the Floridian incandescence that brightened blooms, seemed to come full circle when later expressed in her colorful, light-filled paintings (Moore S. Alice Baber. Woman’s Art Journal. 1982;3:40-44).
