Hard cover book
It includes many of the artist’s extant paintings, as well as drawings, theater designs, and ephemera.
It also highlights Stettheimer’s poetry and gives her a long overdue critical reassessment. The essays-as well as a roundtable discussion by seven leading contemporary female artists-overturn the traditional perception of Stettheimer as an artist of novelties.
Her work is linked not only to American modernism and the New York bohemian scene before World War II but also to a range of art practices active today.
