Albright, Ivan

Albright, Ivan (Le Lorraine)

(1897–1983) painter; born in North Harvey, Ill. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago (1920–23) and lived in various places until settling in Woodstock, Vt. A former medical draftsman, he drew on this background, both in his preoccupation with decay and in his paintings' macabre surrealistic details—as in That Which I Should Have Done I Did Not Do (1931–32). He attained his widest exposure from the painting that was the centerpiece of the movie, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945).
