About the Work
A move to the Catskills piqued Pettigrew's interest in the tradition of women quilting. Unable to quilt herself due to a connective tissue disorder that limited her physical activity, the artist began to explore the visual language of the art form through an ongoing series of paintings. This print edition, The Woman Who Beat The Devil, is based on a painting of the same name from Pettigrew's Quilt Paintings series. Of the series, Pettigrew writes, "I often depict historical experiences of women through these paintings, but with the narratives rewritten to right traumas and produce more cathartic outcomes for the characters."
Emily Pettigrew (b. 1991, York, ME) has upcoming exhibitions at Wilder Gallery (London) and Scroll NYC (New York). Recent solo and group exhibitions include shows with Monya Rowe Gallery (New York), Shrine (New York), Adah Rose Gallery (Kensington, MD), among others.
Authentication & Resale

Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 3-5 weeks for framing and delivery.
All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.
Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.
We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.
Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. This work will be floated with a 1 1/2" white border around the artwork.
