The Art of Bee Yearian

Beatrice M. Yearian was my father’s sister known to me as “Aunt Bee.” Her formal training was that of a physicist and she was also married to a physicist. Both were on the faculty of Purdue University for many years. She was an enthusiastic artist and her scientific background is apparent in her art.

  1. I believe I have a painting by your aunt. It is very neatly signed “B. Yearian ‘66″
    I live in indianapolis, and I see from your brief profile of your aunt that she went to Purdue. I wonder if she painted it in her time there.

    On a whim I did a google search of the name and found this website. The Internet is amazing.
