Artist Hedda Sterne passed away last week at the age of 100.
She was the one woman in that famous photograph of "The Irascibles," taken in New York in 1950. Remember her, standing on the table (not a chair) in the back of the room? That was the coming of age year for American artists.
Goodbye, Hedda. You were one lady who stood tall.
"Nobody tried to influence me, I just worked." Quote HS.
I found out through Debu Barve.
Hedda Sterne: The last of ‘The Irascibles.’
The Wikipedia article on HS is a good one.
