Fran Rinkel was a respected and influential member of the Michigan arts scene from the 1940's up to her death in 1975. She was best known for her abstract style watercolor pieces but drew inspiration from her world travels and was known to experiment in many different styles and mediums. Rinkel was part of an anti-commercialization movement within the arts community and shared her art publicly in libraries and other venues rather than for sale through galleries.
