Masterworks Monday: Hedda Sterne, The Last Abstract Expressionist Dies at 100

11 Apr

I have a weakness for Abstract Expressionism.  I’m not sure what it is about the paintings of that time and the artists who created them, but there is just something about these works that move me.  Maybe it is the experimentation, or the emotionality behind them or the rebellion against a post-WWII saccharine society.

The last of the original group of the Abstract Expressionists, Hedda Sterne has passed on.  Perhaps a lesser known member, her work was still widely collected and is held in the collections of several prominent museums.

Read more about Hedda and her work here:
