In Focus


We are grateful to Emily Warner for her development of this project, and to Elissa Auther for her valuable contribution to the research.

Emily Warner wishes to thank Antonia Pocock at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, for generously sharing information and research leads, and Stacey Gershon at the Renate, Hans and Maria Hofmann Trust for answering questions about the artist.

This project belongs to a series of In Focus studies commissioned as part of Refiguring American Art, a major research project generously supported by the Terra Foundation for American Art.
