Another special highlight of the exhibition will be the rediscovered work of Hedda Sterne (1910-2011), from the 1940s, which will be represented by the Nasui Collection and Gallery. The Romanian-American artist is widely known as the only female artist within a group of Abstract Expressionists known as ‘The Irascibles’, which consisted of Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, among others. As a self-taught artist she was known for her stubborn independence from styles and trends. Her early work is difficult to categorize and consists of a variety of mediums rather than definitive statements, ranging from surrealist techniques to conceptual painting. more
