Human Interest Portraits From the Whitney's Collection
April 27, 2016 - February 12, 2017
This Painting is from a one person exhibition Susan Hall had at the Whitney Museum in 1972. The show was curated by Marsha Tucker, a dynamic and innovative curator.
The early 1970's were an exciting time to be a woman artist in New York City. Women artists were growing in respect and actively breaking down old stereotypes. The liveliness and energy Susan Hall felt about herself and the city is reflected in this painting.
